Award-winning equine artist Booth Malone is widely known for his equestrian and sporting paintings. Essentially self-taught, Booth studied the techniques of portraitist John Singer Sargent and equestrian artist Sir Alfred Munnings. “They’re really twin souls. If Sargent had gone outside more he would have painted like Munnings and vice versa. They were both known for bravura brushwork but I also noticed they went for nuances and subtle gestures and that appealed to me — good paintings should be more than photographic accuracy.” He says he also picks up ideas from the great illustrators like N.C. Wyeth, Rockwell and Leyendecker.
