Starting a Portrait

Today I'm starting another portrait.  I started with a light pencil drawing on my gessoed panel then applied a light wash with transparent oxide brown mixed with turpenoid.  Now I'm putting some values in with the same colors only using a bit less turpenoid.
The part I don't like is having to wait until things dry.  In watercolors you can use a hairdryer but in oils you just have to wait.
