Think there was not enough contrast?

 

Chris, think your suggestions are spot on.  Think it's better though the areas I drew in are a little extra wonky.   did some and then some more.  The last is the one posted on top and at the bottom of this posting.  Thank you for taking the time, I know you are especially busy right now. 

As for your suggestion on printing and trying, it's a good idea.  I try to treat my sketchbook as a place to play and experiment.  I do not have space for much more finished art and doubt anyone would actually want to buy anything I painted so sketchbooks allow an outlet without filling up the house...  Still, printing would allow me to play with color schemes etc so good suggestion.
