A rapid sketch using colour to dramatize the relationship between sea and sky. The dark grey waves are raised on the right and the sea is slashed with colour. The sky is painted purple with a strip of salmon pink on the horizon. On the left a block of lemon colour, streaked with red, indicates the setting sun. Reflections from the sky can be seen on the surface of the water in the foreground. During December 1921 Everett stayed at the 'Fort de L'Ocean' hotel, Le Croisic, near St Lazaire, on the Loire-Atlantique. The hotel was positioned above the rocks and afforded a panoramic view of the sea. He was the only person staying in the hotel, and from his vantage point in the glass verandah, he was able to see the sun rise and set over the Atlantic.
