Color sketch for a larger portrait painting

I’m doing some portraits to push my skills and process. A lovely friend and her daughter modeled for me for the color sketch, so that I could get their skin color right when working larger. When I only have an hour and a half to get my colors right, I set up my pallet completely differently. 3 convenience browns and no warm blue… I think I’ll stick with that pallet for the larger portrait.
