I've recently come across the Scottish Artist Joan Eardley and in particular her landscape paintings of the area around Catterline, south of Aberdeen in Scotland. It looks a beautiful part of the country, I've included a link and a video which show the area on bright sunny days.
When I was at Reading Museum recently, one of her dramatic landscapes was in the exhibition A Sense of Place and the more I looked at it, the more the lines of thick paint made me feel I was looking at the real place, the weather at that instant.
The BBC have also included her in the recent Story of Scottish Art programme and on Coast too.

I'm linking this post to Paint Monthly over on the Coastal Ripples blog.
Thanks as always for calling in.
