Intuitive Nature Artworks

Chrissy Foreman Cranitch

Hello Intuitive Beauties.

When it comes to creativity, hands down my favourite inspiration is Mama Nature. To me, Nature is both inspiring and calming all in one. Her diversity, beauty and abundance never ceases to amaze and inspire me.

Intuitive Nature Artwork

In recent times, I have reinvented a technique I originally learned in Art school back in the early 2000's, called 'blind contour drawing'. It involves looking carefully at an object and sketching it without looking at the page and I have tweaked it to incorporate layering and composing individual items from Nature that inspire me ... flowers ... leaves ... seed pods ... trees, roots, rainbows and mountains.

Outside of my sketch book, I'm always open to the awe that Nature displays for us in everyday Life. My camera roll on my phone is filled with snap shots of beautiful findings along my journey to drop my son off at school, trips to the beach, holidays away up the coast. Yet, there's also loads off inspiration right here at home ... even the succulents and hanging baskets on my front porch and in my back deck Art Studio are fair game!

Connecting with Nature is such an important part of being human. What we find beautiful, we conserve and nurture.

Making Art is a way of honouring something beautiful, both within and outside of ourselves. Whether I'm drawing from a photo or real-life, the natural essence that shines through from this process feels so beautiful, raw and vulnerable to me;  just like emulating Nature Herself. 

We are Her and She is Us.

That's why I've created a special Women's Intuitive Art Class to teach my fave Intuitive Nature processes from my homely studio next weekend. In this lesson, we will use our breath, our imagination and senses with pens and watercolours to create beautiful Intuitive Nature-based Artworks, without fear of making mistakes. This class is truly fun and achievable for all abilities.

>> 'INTUITIVE NATURE ARTWORKS' - SAT 28th APR, 2pm - 4pm

Connect with your Inner Wisdom and Mama Nature to create a beautiful Artwork using mindful drawing techniques.

Inside my Spirit Portraits class

Chrissy Foreman Cranitch

This past weekend I was joined in my Intuitive Art Studio by a beautiful group of women, ready for a gorgeous session of creating Intuitive Spirit Portraits.

I started by sharing a scrummy Spirit Guide meditation to lay the foundation for our Artworks, then we loosened up with some freeform, collaborative Art-making.

From here, it was time to symbolise elements from our intuition, meditation and imagination using my lovely big stash of National Geographic magazines. There was such a lovely calm, yet inspiring vibe as we created together; tearing, cutting and pasting magazines and playing with paints and inks. 

By the end of the session, we had birthed some amazing Spirit Portraits into the world. Check out pics of our session together below ...

If you’re keen to join my next Women’s Intuitive Art Class, check out my upcoming offerings HERE. I'll be sharing 'Mindful Nature Artworks' on Sat 28th Apr + 'Intuitive Mixed Media Drawing' on Sat 26th May.

All my Love,

Winter Intuitive Art Retreat

Chrissy Foreman Cranitch

Hello Beauty, 

I am thrilled to announce that I will be teaching Intuitive Mixed Media Art at the upcoming 2018 McGregor Winter Retreat, in the beautiful grounds of USQ, Toowoomba on 2nd - 6th July, 2018.

In this Intuitive Wisdom Art course, you will access a playful and spirited mixed media approach to creating richly satisfying Art. You will be guided as you explore your intuitions using acrylic paint, watercolour, collage, drawing, nature and engage your senses through mindfulness and setting intentions.

Each day together in the studio, you will learn a new series of inspiring techniques to connect your Intuitive Wisdom with meaningful art-making. Far from being a ‘paint-by-numbers’ class, this workshop is designed to access your unique creative voice to create meaningful artworks for you.

I've created this course to unfold over the full 5 days, using gentle guidance and demonstrations to help you to surrender into the process of creativity and feed your wellbeing in the process.

All my Love,
