Early stages of a portrait

"Downtown Gulfport" by Jack Providenti

8" x 10" oil on canvas

This started with a plein -air value sketch which was done in a very loose style. I took it to my studio and developed this painting from it. Not so loose anymore, but a worthy representation of the area with O'maddy's Restuarant & Salty's Bar. Right across the street from the bay.
