"St Margaret" oil on canvas horse painting by Madeleine Bunbury | Horse polo art gallery

Madeleine Bunbury

United Kingdom

I am a classically-trained equine artist based in Wiltshire, England. After growing up on the Caribbean Island of Mustique, I moved to Florence aged seventeen where I was trained in traditional portraiture for three years at Charles Cecil Studios. It was here that I learned the ‘sight size’ technique and the importance of painting from life under natural light.

I work using my own hand- ground paints and hand- stretched canvases. With the horses posing in front of me I am able to capture their unique character and portray motion and depth. Painting from life achieves an expressive representation which is unparalleled by modern photo-realistic paintings.
