In practice, in daylight, it didn’t seem to make a lot of difference, the light side was still light and the dark side was still dark. But what I thought was interesting was that the light side of the fig, on the left, was almost exactly the same value (to my eye) as the grey fabric it’s sitting on, so the outline completely disappeared on that side.
I wanted to see if I could still show the form without line, even though there’s no edge to draw there.
