Ink wash practice

In order to keep my drawing skills up I decided to do an pen and wash study of flowers. This was a observational drawing from my garden. Observational drawings keep your mind focused on what is in front of you rather than what is on a screen, moreover they teach you how to avoid making this look 2D.

The intention of this was to also keep my hand from becoming lazy over the Summer. I was relatively pleased with the outcome, however this drawing isn’t grounded into its setting. This is something I wish to work on on the future.
