At the Tropic of Cancer from the 'Birkdale'
A preparatory sketch showing the sail of the 'Birkdale, on the far right. The main part of the sketch is taken up with thin layered paint in lilac and purple to represent the sea and pink and blue to represent the sky. Everett has made several lines of notation relating to the use of colours in the final painting across the bottom of the image. Everett joined the barque, 'Birkdale', and sailed from Bristol to Sabine Pass, Texas, April to June 1920.
