Yucatan Straits, Gulf of Mexico from the 'Birkdale'
A dramatic sketch showing cloud formation over the sea in the Straits of Yucatan, Mexico. This is one of the most treacherous bodies of water in the Caribbean Sea, notorious for its strong northerly moving current& shallow coral reefs border both sides of the pass. In the sketch a large bank of cloud hovers above the sea and rises up on the left to trail across the painting as a sweep of yellow and blue. The clouds indicate turbulent upper air. The calm blue sea is portrayed by a thin blue wash and several lines to indicate sea movement. Everett joined the barque, 'Birkdale', and sailed from Bristol to Sabine Pass, Texas, April to June 1920.
