This enabled him to produce powerful and vigorous compositions as seen in this painting ‘A Deck Scene’. In this powerful image from a moving deck, the sails dominate, being portrayed rising vertically out of the picture space, billowing in the weather. A strong diagonal is created by the mast in the foreground to the left and the line of the deck takes the eye along the ship. The angle of the roof of the deckhouse accentuates the impression of a ship in a swell. Everett was a practical deep-water sailor, he understood his subject and his work manifests the knowledge gleaned from living on board.
