This is a detail taken from "Boats on the Seacoast of Etaples" 1871. While I was painting this Mini Master I discovered that Daubigny worked with quite a limited palette. I achieved the result with Raw Titanium, Burnt Sienna, Sap Green and Brilliant Blue with a touch of Matisse Indigo. 

Both the original and my version have quite a warm feeling, like a quiet summer afternoon. As you can see, the sky was very reminiscent of Monet and it is apparent that they worked together. The treatment of shadow and highlights is also very like Manet. A very enjoyable painter to study.
