Seascape from the 'Birkdale'
A sketch from the deck of the 'Birkdale', showing the sea and sky. The sea has been loosely painted as bands of horizontal colour with a few waves implied by short brush strokes in the foreground. The main point of the painting is the sky streaked with colour on the right. The vivid pink and red slashes of colour dominate the image. The artist is drawing on a long tradition of artists, such as Turner, who were concerned to show the effects of weather conditions and sunset in the sky in maritime paintings. Everett joined the barque, 'Birkdale', and sailed from Bristol to Sabine Pass, Texas, April to June 1920.
