Durdle Door Dorset Scarlett Reverie



‘Durdle Door Dorset Scarlett Reverie’

A daydream of fanciful colour that celebrates being part of nature. Set in the scenic setting of Durdle Door, one of the most iconic and epic landscapes in Britain. Part of the Jurassic Coast World Heritage Site, Durdle Door is a very much-loved natural landmark.

The name of this print ‘Scarlett Reverie’ references my printmaker friend Scarlett Rebecca. Scarlett runs the Mawddach Art Residency along with art book writer, art teacher and friend Jake Spicer. I started this and many other designs during my stay in July 2022 in their home in Wales inspired by the creative art settings.

I create each print out of my own hand drawn ink drawings that I colour digitally. I print my design using fine art paper and archival inks, and release each print as part of a limited edition of 100 for the standard sizes 0,A1, A2, A3 or A4. Each print has my signature and edition number.

Photograph of print base drawings. I make these formats with calligraphic brushes, fine-line markers, and other tools. In watercolour, ink and charcoal and on separate sheets of A3 size marker paper. These are scanned and form the main line work and patterns in the final print.

Durdle Door is probably the most famous stone arch anywhere in the world. It was created when the sea pierced through the Portland limestone around 10,000 years ago. Looking west over the beach, isolated stacks out at sea show where an older coastline once lay. This part of the coast is formed from merged bays and shows how Lulworth Cove and Stair Hole may look in several thousand years time.

By following the natural cliff path down to Durdle Door beach, or the steps to Man O’War beach, the tilted Purbeck Beds are clearly visible. At the base of the chalk cliffs a number of caves can be seen which have been carved out by the sea (wave cut notches). Please do not enter them as cliff falls are common. A carefully placed interpretation panel at the top of the steps helps to explain the site.
