A sketch of the sea made while Everett was staying at Corbiere in Jersey. He painted a large number of such sketches, observing the movement of waves approaching the shore, experimenting with colour and form to achieve the desired effects. In this sketch they appear as rolling banks breaking intermittently to throw up flumes of spray. These are shown splashing upwards in a froth of thickly applied paint. Short brush strokes of different colours are used to generate a sensation of movement. The sea and sky are calm and the golden light from the sky imbues the sketch with contentment and tranquillity. 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. He stayed at Corbiere from 13 January to 6 February 1928, to paint the constantly changing appearance of sea and sky.
