I believe there's been improvement but its difficult to quantify as your paintings are all totally different subjects. I do like this one alot however
C&C welcome and encouraged
it's only paint...have fun with it

You could do a very pale glaze of a lighter color over the dark, let that dry to see if it is light enough. If it is the value you want then you can do a pale glaze of the skin color. You might practice then on a piece of scrap paper first to see how it works for you.
