Seascape from the 'Umberleigh'
A sketch of a seascape from the deck of the steamer, 'Umberleigh', showing an empty horizon from a low viewpoint. The artist has concentrated on the effect of the waves, emphasizing the emptiness and vastness of the ocean. He has used impasto paint to create the visual effects in the sky. Flashes of pink streak down the centre of the image and hint at weather conditions on the horizon. Everett produced hundreds of similar rapid seascapes painted in quick succession. He was intent upon capturing the relationship and fleeting nature of light and the movement of waves in an ever-changing sea.
