Supply List

A flower has beauty and character from the start to finish of its life. Often, the job is how to organise and simplify what you see. Through weekly demos, Annelise Firth will share her process, from starting with a colour idea to deciding when to stop.

Annelise has a history with flowers going back to the days of helping her father prune roses, learning flower arranging and to her first oil painting at 14, following instructions from an oil painting manual. Now she looks for the overall patterns and colours and starts with simple drawings based on observation.

This class is suitable for all levels.

Annelise Firth’s background in history of art and a master’s degree in fine art informs her practice in many ways – Turner’s landscapes, Vincent Van Gogh’s flowers and the flat patterns in a Matisse painting.

As a New English Art Club drawing scholar, sketching the composition was paramount. Nowadays the finished painting focuses on colour and creating a looser, more free, representation of what she sees in front of her.
