About this artwork

Eardley painted the fields behind her cottage at No.1 South Row, Catterline on many occasions. Especially the edge of the field to the south of the house where the hedgerow flowers grew. Writing to a friend about this area, Eardley said: ‘It’s a lovely spot as no one comes near and I can always work away undisturbed. I just go on from one painting to another… every day and every week it looks a bit different – flowers come and go and the colour grows – so it seems silly to shift about. I just leave my painting table out there, and my easel and palette.’
