Is it all right to spray fixative at any time when you have some of the picture done?  When it is the best time to do that?

Fixative can be sprayed on at any time - depending on the way you apply the pastels and what you are going to do after you have sprayed. Some artists never spray at all.

Use only a very light spray. Test your fixative as some tend to darken the painting.
