Durdle Door


*This painting is framed.*

The Arm of Durdle Door rock, Dorset (England), dives into the green sea in the middle ground from left to centre, as the sun sets behind the cove to the right, lighting up the dark purple clouds with orange, yellow and pink light. In the foreground the ocean waves crash onto the pebbled beach, throwing spray into the air. The middle sea reflects the sunset light and colours, channelling the light towards us.

‘Durdle’ is derived from the Old English thirl, meaning to pierce, bore or drill, which in turn derives from thyrel, meaning hole.
Durdle door is one of the Jurassic Coast’s most iconic landscapes. It is a natural arch, formed from a layer of hard limestone standing almost vertically out of the sea.
