Well, I think I am at the shadows ([email protected]!) and inking part . I think the light is going to come from the back of the building (because that is where it is on the photo) but the photo doesn't give any help because there is only a shadow in the building of the door frame. So I need to figure out how to do the shadows around those things hanging around the building - anyone? anyone?

Hi Karen,
If this were my painting I`d be tempted to put the source of light coming from the viewers right, that way you can put some shadow on the left hand roof to give it some variation.
Then all your other shadows would fall to the left of all your objects.
I hope this helps in some way.
Sharon.

Sharon,

You've got a good point and I actually that was my first thought until I looked at the photo and let it try to sway me LOL.
