A sketch showing a seascape of waves breaking diagonally on the right. The scene is conveyed through the use of colour and brush strokes. The sea is streaked green and lilac with lighter coloured foam on the crests of the waves. Everett has concentrated on the form and effects of the crests of the waves caused by the wind whipping over the surface of the water. In contrast with the sea the light sky is tinged lemon with pink clouds in two horizontal strips. Everett painted a large number of sketches observing the movement of waves as they approach the shore and experimented with colour and form to achieve the effects he sought. He was concerned with the effects of light and representations of light in the sky and the relationship between the sea and the sky. He stayed at Corbiere from 13 January to 6 February 1928, to paint the constantly changing appearance of sea and sky.
