I have a new image release this month, Ka ‘O‘o Mau Loa... details below. Spring is almost upon us and you may notice the weather changing, birds singing, and hey, even I’m singing! As the season of color comes upon us we are celebrating with more art classes, new paintings and a lesson on the basics of color, the color wheel.

I hope you will be in close touch with the artist within you and be a spark that ignites the imaginations of the people around you. Thank you for your friendship and for enjoying and ordering my art. I especially enjoy doing those special request personalized autographs.

Patrick Ching’s Artistic Insight (back to top)

The Color Wheel

Primary Colors are red, yellow and blue. This is where color begins. You cannot mix any colors together to make blue, or to make yellow, or red.

Secondary colors are a mixing of two primary colors such as blue and yellow to make green, red and yellow to make orange, and red and blue to make purple.

Tirtiary Colors are a mixing of three colors; a primary color mixed with a secondary color. Tirciary colors include red orange, yellow orange, blue green, yellow green,
blue purple and red purple.

One of the most important lessons of the color wheel is complementary colors. These are colors that lay opposite of each other on the color wheel and in effect “make each other look good”. The complement of blue is orange, the complement of red is green, the complement of yellow is purple. Complementary colors are often used to tone each other down. Mixing complementary colors will get you a beautiful brown color.

A color wheel is a tool created to show how colors affect each other. In high school we laughed at our teacher for making us do the color wheel. Today I use the information I learned from the color wheel every day of my artistic life. So make up a color wheel and sleep with it under your pillow!

SENDING ALOHA to our friends in Christchurch New Zealand (back to top)

Our prayers and Aloha goes out to our friends in New Zealand who recently suffered a massive earth quake that killed many people. About twenty of us traveled to South Island when I clowned the Methven Rodeo. I haven’t yet been able to contact several of the people who hosted us and took care of my friend Jeremy after he got Puka Head at the Rodeo. We stayed in Christchurch (hospital) for a while. We hope our friends in Christchurch recover quickly and our condolences to the families who lost loved ones.
