Cox's travel to the Continent was limited in comparison with some of his contemporaries; he made three visits in all: to Belgium and Holland in 1826 and to France in 1829 and 1832. This sketch taken is perhaps from the ferry during the artist’s crossing to Belgium in 1826 or to France in 1829. The composition is freely drawn in pencil and with a brush, and the broad controlled washes capture the movement of the sky and sea.
