Drawing horses from life

14th January 2019 - 16th January 2019
3 Day Workshop


579 Coimadai Road, DIGGERS REST. 3427

Maximum 10 participants

10 am – 4pm – bring own lunch and cool drinks, coffee-tea provided..........please arrive at 9.30 am


There is no magic formula for drawing a well proportioned horse, however, sketching horses from life gives the artist an extensive knowledge that you will not get any other way.

When you are in front of a live model, you will see and notice things that you would never think to take a photograph of.  You will notice the coat of a horse on a bright day, the way horses act towards each other and the positions they get into while at rest and when they move.

Join Equine/Sporting Artist Judith Leman at Stockwell Thoroughbred Stud who will guide you through the steps of sketching horses with a minimal of equipment.

“Remember, to leave all schools of thought, rules, theories and 'isms' behind......you will record what you see more than you see from photographs.  Plus you will enjoy yourself at one of Victoria's prestigious stud farms.......walking shoes, fitness and enthusiasm essential as our models tend to wander”.

Judith Leman

Judith has worked for over 30 years as an artist painting in oil and watercolour in the field of Fox Hunting, Horse Racing and Classical Dressage.  Her expertise in painting Foxhounds and Sporting Dogs has contributed to her being recognised as one of the premier portrait artists in Canine art. 

Judith has made a successful transition into sculpture and most recently has created a series of bronze sculptures in recognition of the vital role played by Horses in the First World War as demonstrated in the 'Battle of Beersheba' 1917.  The sculptures are a unique bond between a soldier and his Equine companion.  They are currently on loan to the Australian War Memorial and are on view until November 30.
