Fabulous. The ellipse at the bottom of the watering can doesn't match the top but the cover is domed? and shouldn't matter. The mortar in the bricks immediately to the right of the shadow of the watering can looks too dark but you already saw all that? What about the top of the bird box? Does that get squared off? The roof looks ok but where they overlap is a little too dark. The concave parts of the roofing are a little dark too. The pump is magnificent.
The subtle shading on the wall under the overhanging roof is fabulous.
I'm always at war with values. And, I never let a single one get away from me if I can help it. My husband thinks I'm talking to someone as I find them in their hiding places. I see you have a similar attitude about values and their hiding places. Route them out!
@paulb Your attention to detail is commendable and the outcome is wonderful. I'm not afraid of ellipses, but they're nothing compared to all the detail, textures, values etc. Splendid, looking forward to the final.

Paul, You would have "seen" the bird in the hole even if he wasn't there!
