The image seems to still be wandering around off course. Every time I think I only have two colors left to go I find I am very, very wrong.

Of course all bets are off when we move on, so guess what? I actually stopped to do some actual planning. Please, no one faint.
Here's how planning looks in my world: I took a photo of the print so far, flopped it around backwards in Unnamed Evil Adobe Photo Manipulation Software (so it matched the orientation of my block) et voila!
As a result of this doodling I decided I wanted to tone a few areas down, so I opted for a transparent white layer.

I hesitate to say it, but NOW I think I'm down to just two more colors. I certainly hope so, I'm losing interest and confidence in the effort so far. With luck I'll have it all done this weekend.
