The leading edge of a shape should be very light ( nearest the light) .....

The darkest areas are those behind others.....

With a rounded form, the 'edge' is never darker than the form next to it as there are no edges to a rounded form!

Thank you! I can see I've been trying to do what you suggest in you hints.

Now, I have more things to practice. Cheers. jennie
