Local Artist Creates Dressage at Devon 2014 Poster Artwork
Dressage at Devon has selected local artist, Phoebe Darlington, to create artwork for the 2014 show poster. Self taught, Darlington has been creating portraits in pencil for more than 20 years.
Inspiration for the Dressage at Devon 2014 poster artwork came from a photograph taken by Hoof Print Images. The scene features the committee stand in the background, and the rider and horse in the foreground having just received their award. Eyes focus on the rider’s raised glove and the horse’s proud expression while a ghosting effect created in the background appears like a watercolor. “Both horse and rider are such champions. I hope the viewer feels the excitement in the moment,” describes Darlington.
