In this sketch I changed the 2008 jacket, shirt and tie to a Sixties outfit.
I'm going to take a good look at the heads, maybe i'm going to replace them one more time. Then i finaly can start with the live sized drawing!!

I choose different clothing for the "Fifties Elvis". I thought that the clothes i choose before are a bit dark. I picked the light striped coat that you see a lot on photos of Elvis from the Fifties.
I'm working on a rough sketch for the Sixties and when that is finished i'm going to start on a exact live sized drawing which i can transfer to the canvas.

I started another big Elvis project. 24 portraits, size 6" x 6" with oil paint. I got the idea for this project from my first small Elvis portrait. The first painting will be from 1954 and the last from 1977. When they are all done i'm going to build a special frame where they fit all in. I started on the underpaintings for the portraits from 1955, 1966 en 1968.
