I've been thinking which way I want to go; like Mike Wise putting more contrast between values and colors, or like Norman Lundin using limited palette and not much color variation but subtle value shift to highlight limited areas. I haven't made up my mind, but likely in-between.
So I made the mid to foreground much darker since they're actually shadowed by clouds and also much closer to the viewers. I might want to make those limited sun lit area lighter to create contrast. Probably I need to make shapes clearer in the mid-foregrounds.

The bottom right is obviously the last practice of the day for a still life. I think the yellow-green leaves are nicely popping up, but as Mitch commented, the window was supposed to be the lightest of this composition, which is not quite. I need to keep trying to create lightest rich colors.
