A sketch of the sea made while the artist was at Corbiere in Jersey. The viewpoint means the waves almost break at eye level. Through the use of form and colour Everett creates a dramatic evocation of sky and sea, potentially threatening and full of foreboding. The waves are shown as a rhythmic progression, their underside streaked with different short dashes of colour. The tops of the waves are painted lighter and the paint is at its thickest where sunlight is reflected on them. The sky is covered on the left with a solid purple mass to represent cloud streaking diagonally across the picture surface. It trails upwards to form a swirl of pink and cream. Other masses of colour hover to imply both movement and an impending storm. In his seascapes Everett was concerned with the effects of light and representations of light in the sky and the relationship between the sea and the sky.
