Welcome to the WDE Paul - it is infectious - you are now in for the long haul - great people here with lots of knowledgeable advice if needed - not from me, I started in 2009 a few years after retirement and had not painted in 30 yrs., still learning. Lovely sketch hope we will see this finished - will return...

Nice crop to the flowerpots. I can imagine how well this will work as an oil.

Nice loose sketch. The oil is something which you could build on with a bit more detail once it's dry, or not if you want to leave it as a quick sketch.

Welcome to the WDE to a fellow Bostonian. Sick of the snow yet? Been shoveling for my "winter exercise:)"

Like the bits of light you captured here and it is a good crop.
