Black and White Acrylic Elvis

I had so much fun painting this Elvis picture.I spent more time doing the gradient effect on the background than i did painting him though!

This painting was a comission,i chose this picture of Elvis as i knew i would enjoy painting the background effect so much and i wanted to play with just adding a touch of colour to the black and white and a little pink to his face to see what would happen.

On reflection i might have lowered Elvis a bit so his head was nearer the centre.A practical adaption i was having too much fun to consider.As a consequence if it was framed you might loose a bit of his iconic quiff,hardly appropriate!But it really does not need framing.
