The North Pacific from the 'Umberleigh'
A sketch in the North Pacific, from the 'Umberleigh'. It shows the effects of the sun on sea and sky. The outline of land is visible in the distance on the right. Everett has used colour and form to achieve his desired effect. The sky is bathed in a brilliant light and above the horizon the sky is a range of different shades. Tones of pink are shown on the left and on the right above the land. Yellow tones are shown in layers, closest to the sun, with lilac and mauve streaks of paint to represent clouds. The paint thickens higher in the sky and is streaked with vivid yellow paint. The calm sea is painted as a flat layer of mid-blue, darkening towards the horizon, and the reflections of the sun's rays float brilliant tones of paint on the surface of the water.
