Yeah, should work. But I think I would find it easier to drive a nail, put a loop of string over it, then stretch it out with a pencil, and run the pencil around. Probably more accurate tho to drive a nail thru a piece of wood for a pivot point, then stick a pencil thru a hole in the other end. But those would only be if I wanted a circle larger than a compass would mark out. And if I wanted to mark out a bunch of circles, all the same size, I would cut out one at the size I wanted, then just run a pencil around it.

.....Call me a craftsman, artisan, or artistic, and I will accept that. Call me an artist and you will likely get a quite rude comment in return. I am not a @#$%ing artist.
