New Watercolour - 'In Safe Hands' 2nd step

Here's the next step in the progress of 'In Safe Hands'. This is a watercolour on a half sheet of Arches 300 cold pressed watercolour paper. The paints are from a Holbein limited palette, the brushes are Escoda synthetic.
Have started to work on one of the figures in this step - flesh tones are so unique and difficult to apply. I think that the chin is not quite right and the dark of the jaw line is too hard - he does not have a beard. 
I have used a tripod for these photos but now need to work on better lighting as you can see a difference between this photo and the one for the previous step. Your comments and critique is welcomed - don't hold back.
