How Much Should I Draw First?

Portrait In Progress III
Oil on Canvas, 6" sq., c. Catherine Vines
I was a little intimidated by this pose, so I did more drawing than usual before I started painting. As a result, I trusted my marks rather than constantly checking my proportions.
It resulted in a wonderful likeness from the bottom of the nose up. Then everything got scrunched, for want of a more technical term.
My work here is not through!
