Actually the front "bulb" of the chin needs to be a warm round pink too. You can always do more! Don't put on too much color all at once, build it. Take time to study each addition. Use lots of different colors that will mix together to create the final color (rather than color the lily all pink, or all orange, for instance.)

Here's the first sketch of Ernie's Gabby. You can see I established the darks, the lights, and the background, and would then work the color of the dog. The dog, like my daughter's hair above, would be blocks of reds and darks and golds, with a final layer to round or smooth it.

Anyway, that's how I work.
