Gulf of Mexico from the 'Birkdale'
An impressionistic sketch showing the Gulf of Mexico from the 'Birkdale'. The calm sea is loosely painted and forms a visual contrast to the dark sky. A bank of cloud sits horizontally across the painting, and the sun can be seen weakly through the clouds. The artist has concentrated on the cloud formation over the sea which towers in the distance, right of centre, to create visual effect and is highlighted with tinges of pink. Everett joined the barque, 'Birkdale', and sailed from Bristol to Sabine Pass, Texas, April to June 1920.
