Fort de France, Martinique
A sketch showing the profile of the coastline of Fort de France, Martinique. Everett has captured the intensity of the sunset over the mountains in the centre of the image. He concentrates on the relationship between the powerful yellow sun and the dark silhouette of the mountains. The rising clouds dominate the left of the painting. They echo the profile of the mountains which form a dark silhouette free of detail. This simplistic structure of formalistic reductive shapes and blocks of colour creates an impression of surreal stillness.
