Sketchbook 6, Draw Flowers

My theme this week is Draw Flowers. While flowers are definitely NOT a new subject for me (or anyone!),  I am working with pen and ink as well as watercolor. The ink will take a little of the control away from me, which will be good since I can tend to be a bit of a perfectionist. The thin nibs also lend themselves to much more detail than I can achieve with regular pens.  I want to use the watercolor as a background for the ink work.
The sketchbook pages have images from Martha Stewart Magazine July 08...I love the styling with the flowers placed in the different shaped bottles and cups. (Maybe I will incorporate that idea as well) I did some practice flowers with the ink that are on the pages too.
