A sketch showing waves breaking waves close to shore at Le Croisic, Brittany. The slate-grey tones of the sky are broken up with a yellow horizontal band streaked with red, to indicate the sun. By contrast the sea is dark green and grey. Everett has concentrated on form and colour so that the water in the foreground is reduced to a honeycomb pattern of light tones. The large diagonal wave in the middle distance forms the focal point of the sketch. It is constructed with a series of hatched short brush strokes of colour and the spray caused by the effect of the wind whipping it over the surface of the water is emphasized by exaggeratedly stylized shapes. The brilliant light from the sky casts a reflection which plays across the surface of the water.
