Monet in Pourville - collage

I've been studying some of Claude Monets coastal works. I so admire the way Monet takes a simple scene and paints it over and over again depicting different light effects. This is a collage of his paintings looking left from the beach access pathway at Pourville (the blue one somehow flipped itself).

And these are his paintings looking right.

It's obvious that the sweeping view of the beach and headland to the left is the one that caught his attention. However, he did create a popular painting looking to the right. And just look what an amazing job Renoir does in the same location.
