A dramatic sketch of waves breaking on the shore at Le Croisic, Brittany, using colour to create the effect. The waves break in a horizontal band across the foreground, and, using short brush strokes, Everett has painted them as thick patches of colour, varying between deep purple and bright green. He has captured the effect of the sun low in the middle of the picture towards the horizon. The sky is loosely painted with purple and blue clouds contrasting with the lighter cream clouds and the vivid slash of yellow. The shallows in the foreground are shown as small slashes of colour, picking up the brilliance of the sun in the reflections.
