Lucy Hi Susan,
in my opinion, in all the drawings (regardless of the technique that is used) I made the backgrounds only at the end.

but also it depends on the subject you are drawing.

Background Inquiry

When working in dry media, mostly graphite and chalk pastel, do you find it easier to do the background first and then the subject or the other way around?

Any tips or suggestions for keeping background off the subject? Would appreciate any advice you may have.

Thanks for your time.
