I have made some good progress on this colored pencil piece, but it may not be apparent. I've started adding some dark shapes on the teapot shadow side that will not be detailed.
In the light and shadow concept either the light or the shadow is detailed but not both. So my detail will be in the light. This means that you need to push the shadow shapes darker and the light shapes lighter to have that contrast between the two. This will hold the value structure together.
All that sounds really nice, but it's when you put your pencil to the paper your understanding all goes out the window ;-)
