This work was painted in Catterline, a village on the East Coast of Scotland where Eardley owned a cottage. It suggests something of the power of the sea, with the wave approaching the shore like a wall of water. The artist has described the circumstances of the painting: ‘It was painted during February 1961 – entirely outside – as is the case with all my sea paintings. It was one of four paintings which I had in progress during a stormy period of weather. I worked on all four together – or rather from one to the other according to the tide’.
