A sketch of waves breaking on Porthmeor Beach, St Ives. The viewpoint is low and close to the water. No horizon or sky is shown and the eye is taken to the line of waves breaking. The whites of the waves form a rhythmic pattern of light paint and through form and colour Everett has achieved his desired effect. St Ives was an important town for artists from the 1890s to the present day. Everett rented a studio at Porthmeor Beach during 1935 and he observed that although he had an ideal place to work, the weather was very cold and with east and north-easterly winds there were no seas.
