Gong Li - Second Drawing

Back in 2003 I drew a ink pen drawing of the actress Gong Li in my sketchbook from a still frame from the movie "To Live". The drawing was primitive. Here is a second try at the same subject but with a different approach.

I started out (above) with 5 basic tones that were a rough palette of what was going on in the picture as far as hue and value. You can see those in the squares at the top of the drawing. Then below as needed, I augmented the drawing with four new tones which had to still match one of the five basic values I had established early on.
