Q&A: When painting with acrylic paints, what should I start painting first?

Question by 666: When painting with acrylic paints, what should I start painting first?
I’ve searched all over the internet for an answer to this but all I keep coming up with are techniques on how to mix colors for acrylic painting! I really want to know how I should start painting my image. It’s a portrait of one of my closest friends. Should I paint the background of the canvas board first or her face or her hair?? Please help!

No matter which medium I use, I always start with a basic sketch, then paint from background forward
