I started with a basic pencil sketch on inexpensive sketchbook paper:

Then I developed the first layers of mid-tones using a 2H pencil:*CLASS DEMO* Eggs in a Bowl Value Sketch - image 2 - student project*CLASS DEMO* Eggs in a Bowl Value Sketch - image 3 - student project

Then I added some initial shadows with a B pencil:

Finally, I used a 6H pencil to nuance the mid-tones, and a kneaded rubber eraser to mark out the highlights:
