Aloha ,



It's been a glorious summer and we're heading into a super exciting fall season.

The big news is that the Honu and Hina Story of Coexistence book is ready for printing and is expected to arrive in late October. Mom's book Love Letters from the Master will also be here in time for Christmas. Read below to find out how to get your presale books which will help us with the production costs of these important projects.

The KAI Ocean Art Show at the Moana Resort in Waikiki was so much fun and I thank all of you who followed or came to visit me there.

Our Art Tip this time is on the special knowledge and use of reflected light. A must read if you are considering being an avid artist.

Of course I'll finish with my favorite photos that always make me smile so I share them here with you.

Mahalo

ART TIPS

- Great art tips
Hawaii Art Tip: Using Reflective light -
One thing that makes realistic art really impressive is the use and depicting of reflective light. The understanding of reflective light can be likened to an insider trade secret. Not all teachers want to let the cat outa the bag by sharing this :

  • The main source of light (direct light) hits an object and lightens it from a certain direction, reflective light is the light that shines around and past an object and bounces or reflects off of surrounding things to indirectly lighten the shaded side of an object.


  • This reflective light is usually not as bright as direct light and it is generally cooler than the warmer direct light.


  • Understanding and using reflective light in your paintings will impress your viewers and add drama and form to your subjects.


The red bird painting sample above shows both direct and reflective light as does the illustration of the monk seal in the simple sketch below.

Honu and Hina Hawaii Art Book IndieGoGo Fundraiser
-
Now awaiting printing, this book has been a very important project that involved the contributions of many artists and writers. Honu and Hina highlights the unique situations we are faced with today as we live along with protected species like sea turtles and monk seals. This children's book is both endearing and thought provoking as it asks our youth how they will handle the issues of coexisting with these important creatures.


You can help bring this project to life by contributing to the Indiegogo funding campaign which runs from September 25 - October 25. Your contribution will be rewarded with some great perks and my sincere thanks.

Mahalo from Nyla! - Yee-Ping Cho - Date - 1/10/2014

We stopped by your studio about three weeks ago as our Kauai vacation was drawing to a close. Our daughter, Nyla, had a lovely visit with you. Here is a photo that we took that day thanks for taking such good care of her. She brings the Hina book everywhere and tells anyone who will listen all about her visit with you. You made a big impression!

Mahalo.

Fernando Rueda Izagirre - Date - 11/6/2013

I got today the matted prints. I have no words to express my feelings... I just order another two sets of prints. They will also be for Kelea and Mikel and I will be very grateful if you could also personalize these prints for them. I will frame all the matted prints and give them to the kids for Christmas (I have to hide them until then!). I'm sure they will love them so much. Read more of this testimonial & view image
