BibbyNeat! Did you look at a photo reference, or did you just paint what you saw from the porch? Either way, that looks like a beautiful place to hang out.
Actually, I took a photo off of the front porch to use as a reference.
This way, the wind, dust, animals, constantly changing light source, and construction equipment would not interfere.
( also, I find it easier to try drawing from a 2d reference.)
I'm afraid I cannot share the reference however, due to privacy concerns.
