Urban Sketching - Lemons - 20190527 - student project

I wanted to practise my dimensions. With this painting, I tried to incorporate several concepts

Foreground, Mid-ground and Distance

Rule of Threes

And the Triangle shape

My Pros . . . 

I am happy with how my Lemons turned out. And the way I managed to get some shading done on them
I laugh at myself with the stairs. I don't know how I managed to get them going up instead of down, but I think that it still works ;-) 
I decided to do a terracotta pot instead of a basket weave. As the weave would be a bit more technical than I am up top just yet

I loved how I managed to get the wood of the table to look fairly natural

My Cons . . . 

The shrubbery ended up looking like a big green sponge from a distance. Any suggestions on how I can improve on that?
