St Ives, Cornwall
A sketch of the sea breaking close to the shore at St Ives in Cornwall. The artist has concentrated on the rhythmic breaking of waves placed diagonally across the painting. He is concerned to show the crests of the waves as they move towards the shore. The white of the foam is counterbalanced by the white on the sea in the distance. A ship is just visible on the horizon. St Ives has been an important town for artists from the 1890s to the present day. Everett rented a studio at Porthmeor Beach during 1935 and this sketch probably relates to that period.
