From National Gallery of Canada:
Monet usually began his paintings of outdoor subjects on the spot - en plein air - at times finishing them in the studio. In this work he has employed a variety of brush techniques to capture the motion of the sea and surf: long, horizontal strokes are used for the distant open sea, while vibrant swirls and dashes depict the waves breaking at the shore.
