As Mr Old Pedant has been explaining it to me I will share - you can print things on top in a higher layer so when you move them away the map still shows. (It doesnt require two canvas's you just set the z layer higher to the objects you want in front)
My problem was drawing a character over a background. You have to use a GIF rather than a JPEG to set the unwanted pixels to transparent so the background shows through any white space around your graphic
