I applied Highlight, Shadow and Neutral. Actually 2 neutrals. First one on the tincans holding the flowers and then one on the pavement.
I then placed a hue clock on his face to monitor the colour. It should be more over to the 'lunchtime' side, I know. The paper wrapped about the flowers was very blown out, so I clicked on the red channel and moved the curve until the paper had some definition again.
I quite like the colour of the wall. One can see where an attempt was made to clean where the stone work is slightly rosy. But the bottom of the wall shows the grime of ages.
Typical London scene.

Your hue clock says a lot about this current version...The skin tone is too red.  Try to move the skin tones into the 12:00 to 1:00 "zone".  It will reduce the red overall.
