He loved sailing, and in 1892 he bought a small boat which he used to travel to all the ports in France. From this period onwards, his palette lightened in colour and he focused primarily on seascapes and painting ports and boats, as seen in the sketch of Port Louis. He would sketch in watercolour or pencil, drawing rapidly from nature and then return to his studio to produce oil versions on canvas. The earlier dots of Pointillism matured into larger squares, mosaic-like, in rich colours.
