Oil painting a doll

The pallet is white, burnt sienna ,burnt umber,blue.
I mix 3 shades of flesh using the white and the burnt sienna.From the base flesh color I mix all the other colors used on the face.The only black is the pupil in the eye.I use very little paint and move it with shade brushes.
