An Evening of Floral Female Life Drawing

Our floral studio hosted an intimate, yet relaxed floral female life drawing evening on Saturday 25th May, 2019. Even though many of the guests hadn’t joined a figure drawing class before, everyone was in the safe hands of French-born artist Ophelia Jacarini, during the session Ophelia shared techniques and tips to help get everyone’s artistic side flowing.


Ambient tunes, soft lighting and calming scents helped to create a tranquil yet relaxing setting for the evening ahead. We created a natural and floral scene for the figure drawing session; using pale pink roses, pampas grass and fresh foliage for the beautiful nude model. The evening began with longer poses to get the group warmed up, then Ophelia used shorter poses which gave the opportunity for lots of quick practice and made guests focus on the drawing the lines and shape of the body, rather than the finer details.

I sometimes think there is nothing so delightful as drawing
— Vincent Van Gogh

The evening was rounded off with guests sharing their work and experiences over elderflower gin cocktails; everyone left with Floristry flowers in hand and a new found passion for life drawing.

Stay tuned for more Floristry at M&L Curates events and happenings.
