Having a go with the Zorn palette for this sketch.

– Titanium White
– Ivory Black
– Yellow Ochre
– Alizarin Crimson (would have preferred a different red, but this is all I have for now).

I used a little Gamsol to loosen the paint, but no actual painting medium.

No photo reference this time. I just sketched straight onto the illustration board then started painting! I toned the board with raw sienna acrylic paint.

The drawing was sealed with fixative spray then 3-4 coats of acrylic matte medium.
