As we can see his style has now completely departed from his earlier Realist style and we see the influence of the Impressionist painters.  In this painting he has produced a seascape imbued with warmth, joy and optimism.  The elements he used are deceptively simple.  He has the sun, the sky, the sea, some seagulls and a rock formation.  However his use of brushstrokes, thick impasto paint and the complexity of colours create a picture that is anything but simple.  The short brushstrokes generate the never-ending waves.   The paint is thickly applied creating movement and texture to the waves.  Again, his highlights are not just white but an intricate mix of blues, yellows, oranges and white.  This gives the painting a sense of movement and lightness.
