Eugène Louis Boudin sketched in oil and watercolour directly from nature but this more finished painting would have been produced in the studio. It was Boudin's ambition, and his achievement, to retain all the spontaneous freshness of direct observation in the finished work. He is the painter of sea breezes, scudding skies and the grey, choppy sea of the Normandy coast. Boudin was born near the harbour at Le Havre and this area was the inspiration for most of his modest but atmospheric art.
