About this artwork

Peploe began to paint 'en plein air' in around 1896, in North Berwick, a coastal town east of Edinburgh. He made this small, loosely handled work there in 1903. The grey northern light at dusk contrasts with the bright Mediterranean light he was later to capture in France. However, the free brush strokes and rich, impasto paint become common characteristics of his later work.
