Hi, nice sketchbook so far, you have a great eye for volumes and forms, and a great spontaneous brush stroke. Those two things, in my opinion, are key, and i see that people including me some times, have a lot of problems with both.
So, you are strugling with colors, wich can be a nightmare is true, but don't worry too much about that since is not as important as value.
If you don't mind,one suggestion to learn about colors:
-Do a lot of color picking from photographs as a mean of really understand how colors works and their relationships with surrounding colors .....and the values of colors, and how a color changes when in shadow and when in light. Is incredible how colors confuse the eye, if you use them from imagination as you think they are, you won't ever use them effectively. To eventually mimic how colors look in nature, you have to know them first hand, and experimenting with real stuff is the best bet. Doing this, in no time you can progress a lot.
See how relative are colors, no wonder is a difficult thing to grasp, here some eye opener links, james gurney is the color master of these days...
