My first attempt after doodling with leaf shapes was to make a foxglove! I tried to paint one from memory and it turned out pretty bad! I know you said numerous times to use a reference image and when I did, I was amazed at the results! Haha this sounds super cheesy but its so real! Here's my attempts:

And then I kept going and painted a thistle and some blue flowers from a reference and I LOVE how they turned out!
