Seascape from the 'Birkdale'
A sketch of a seascape made from the 'Birkdale'. In this loosely worked sketch Everett has used broad brush strokes and blocks of colour to convey the scene. In the foreground thick impasto paint has been applied in broad sweeps and the sea has been painted with a palette of green, grey, lilac and white. The sky has a horizontal band of light lilac on the horizon and is streaked a strong yellow above, to indicate the setting sun. On the left of the image the sky has a pattern of strong coloured shapes to indicate clouds. They move diagonally across the picture plane from left to right and spread out across the sky. The sketch shows Everett experimenting with form and colour to convey the scene.
