Layering Detail over Values

The contrast between the darker and lighter values is getting more pronounced.  I’m constantly re-adjusting them, too.  I’m starting to layer on some of the detail of Baby’s delicate plumage.  It’s not easy thinking in terms of values and then layering on the feathers without being distracted by the fact that I’m looking at a color image. I’m trying to translate those colors into greys, whites and blacks.  And when do I know that there’s enough detail?  I guess there’s no right answer to that question.
