SHAMANS EYE Abstract Intuitive Online Art Class
Mixed Media Painting with Kristena West M.A.

Classroom Opens Tuesday September 22
class best viewed by wide-screen

I am a life-long contemplative painter, following my intuition has become my artistic discipline. But it's taken all my life to move from my beloved figurative art to exploring abstraction with a passion! For years I have been learning new techniques in mark-making and exploring these in hundreds of paintings, drawings and monoprints and it's come together  in a completely new way!

Following our intuition we can rely on the journey taking us to undiscovered rambles

Many of us long to create from our intuition, but we may feel stuck, or fearful of the blank canvas, or mid-way through start to lose confidence as the images keep changing. 

Learn how to overcome these creative obstacles, and move back to a space of balance and confidence and continue the creative freedom of the painting journey. 

 

Everyone is Welcome, you do not have to be an artist to take this class!

Classroom is open now as self-study course. With some paint, inks, crayons and brushes we start layering the canvas ...here is my outdoor art table where I can take a painting and add abstract layers, washes, inks, stencils and more!

Short video demonstrating color wash, shifting our perspective and using a Shamans Gaze to See into the image to form that wishes to arise..

Lesson includes podcast What is a Shaman's Eye? What is Perception? 
 

Develop the Shaman's Eye

PROJECT 3: LAYERS & SEEING THE IMAGE BECOMING 

Learn how to be spontaneous, follow your heart and mix it up using textures, colors, darks and lights and have fun.

 

Move from pure abstact  into the forms becoming... what beings want to live in the work? Following the thread or bread crumbs that travel thru the landscape of the painting and participate in the creation of an intuitive spiritual painting.
