This is one of my under-paintings from Fongwei Liu's workshop.  He generously shared his five value concept with us.  The five values are:  light, light mid-tone, core shadow, dark mid-tone and reflecting light.  I'm used to thinking in terms of light, mid-tone and dark, so this concept is a revelation to me.  

I hope you're all having a great week!

It is very good work - proportions, values. You catch the five value concept really great! It is interesting and worthy of analysis. I have to thing about. Thank you Darla for sharing the idea.
