Seascape from the 'Birkdale'
A sketch of an empty horizon from the deck of the 'Birkdale'. Taken from a low viewpoint Everett explores the relationship between sea and sky through the reflections from the sun. He has painted the waves with a series of short brush strokes of different colours. The sky is shown in shades of graduated tones from yellow to blue with cloud shown as a pink mass on the right. The sun is painted with thick impasto paint and the reflection it casts plays over the surface of the water in the foreground. Everett joined the barque, 'Birkdale', and sailed from Bristol to Sabine Pass, Texas, April to June 1920.
