Begin The Shadows And Build The Halftones

With Sand, fill in the main color of the teapot, leaving the white of the paper exposed for the highlight areas. Apply Dark Brown to the outside edges of the teapot, making sure to vary them in line width and darkness.

The light source is coming directly from the front, so the shadows are cast along the sides and behind the teapot. Use Dark Brown to add the cast shadow under the teapot and on the wall behind it, then begin building the halftones on the teapot, fading the tones toward the full-light area. The basic form of the teapot is now complete. You can see the reflected light along the rim and bottom of the teapot.
