Seascape from the 'Birkdale'
A dramatic sketch from the 'Birkdale', showing the effects of cloud hovering over the Gulf of Mexico. The artist has used form and colour to create a dramatic effect. The clouds hover against a flat blue sky and are shown as a mass of colour. Using short curved brush strokes, Everett has used tones of dark blue and grey underneath and pink, orange and red above. The more vivid colours indicate the reflections from the sun. These tones are reflected on the surface of the flat calm sea shown as a series of horizontal lines of varying length. Everett joined the barque, 'Birkdale', and sailed from Bristol to Sabine Pass, Texas, April to June 1920.
