Though, I draw from my imagination in most cases, there is a great deal of drawing that came before. To learn to paint/draw a thing, I immerse myself first in a complete sensual understanding of that thing. To know that there are always an uneven number of flower petals and the parts of a flower is super important to draw ... ahem ... realistic, imaginary flowers (or anything for that matter)
Research of the most pleasant sort, I'd say and you would surely agree.
