Sea and Snow, Catterline

About this artwork

Eardley first visited Catterline, a small coastal village south of Aberdeen, in 1951. From the mid-1950s she stayed there semi-permanently, dividing her time between Glasgow and Catterline. This painting shows an unusual view-point, looking down from the clifftop in front of her cottage at No.1 South Row, north-east to the pier across the bay. With a limited palette and bold brush strokes, Eardley has captured the chill of a winter’s day on the north sea coast.
