Color mixing is not easy

There are colors that I find difficult to mix.  Or describe ("a 2x4 under harsh sunlight reflecting off the neighbor's pale blue house").  Here is an example, I started at the bottom, and 15 steps later I gave up and used what I had.  I should have stopped at step 9.  Then I realized the wood changed color as I was moving up.

Part of the problem is that I'm trying to match a dithered color on an 11" x 17" print, and its not easy.  I was going through the six questions, but ...

What do you do when the 6 questions fail you?  One answer would be to just get the value right and go for it, which is what I think I did.  Got a better suggestion?
