Seascape (Foam and Blue Sky)

About this artwork

The village of Catterline, near Stonehaven on the North East coast of Scotland became Eardley’s home in the 1950s. She bought a simple cottage on the headland above the bay and set to capturing the changing moods of seasons and weather. The seascapes were painted mainly in winter in extreme cold and in winds which sometimes blew the paintings away. Clamps were used to keep paintings to her easel which was weighted down with rocks.
