Seascape, Le Croisic
A seascape showing a calm sea, made while Everett was staying at Le Croisic, France. It concentrates on the effects of light created by the setting sun on the sky and also by reflection on the sea. The sketch shows waves breaking close to shore using impasto in short brush strokes of paint in the foreground. The wave in the foreground is shown breaking in sequence in a series of foam-topped curves. Hatched colour forms the underside of the waves with lighter tones creating the effect of froth. The flat pale lemon-coloured sky is flecked with brilliant yellow-orange brushstrokes to indicate wisps of cloud. A band of lilac haze marks the horizon and the careful use of colour implies cold wintry conditions.
