Here’s a video of working from a photo on my iPad Pro with the Apple Pencil. I tend to place the reference photo in a corner of the screen. Then,  I usually make a few guide marks in blue pencil before I begin.​ the video moves rather quickly and doesn’t show the layer activity but it may give you an idea of how the work goes.
