  1. Yvonne Nesbitt (verified owner)

    Fantastic horse tutorial, I’m busy working my way through it, the content is phenomenal and easy to skip between tails, ears and eyes if you fancy doing only pieces or a medley. Keeping up with the tutorial is easy as you can pause and go back over each piece until you can grasp it, well worth the extra money

  2. Sue Kerrigan-Harris

    It’s really good. I haven’t finished it but what I have done have me the confidence to paint my daughter’s horse. That had to be right as she knows every hair on his head! One day I’ll complete the course and start on the portrait course. My daughter’s horse painting is the best painting I’ve done to date.

  3. Connie Glasgow

    Love the amount of detail Sue goes into and the content of this course is immense.

  4. Kimmi Emjay

    Horses are a passion of mine and this course gave me the confidence and techniques to create realism in my art
    Sue is the best tutor I’ve ever had to teach me in anything I’ve ever done
    Her calm and detailed style is so easy to follow, explanations make sense and the videos are mine to follow at my own pace which is fantastic
    Following this course has given me the help I needed to believe in myself
    Highly recommended

    Loved Sue’s Horse Portrait Course – learned so much about creating the shapes by using different tones, and getting that 3D effect. Lots of paintings – small and large pictures, various coat types and colours, such a comprehensive course. A ‘must do’ for anyone interested in painting horses.

    I cannot recommend this highly enough, it has so much in depth detail without finding the way Sue teaches you difficult. I am a total beginner at art of any description and cannot believe the quality of work i am achieving. Like most people i probably tried to work too quickly at the beginning but soon learned to work much slower and the quality of my work increased 10 fold. Thank you so much Sue , I really appreciate the time and effort you put into making you’re tutorials xxx

    Absolutely loved doing this one from Sue’s horse course i think I’m getting better with the whiskers. I’m really enjoying the horse course and working with pastels.

  9. Ann Kretzschmar

    I am really enjoying working through the Horse Portrait course. So many different examples and studies to work on with detailed instructions and videos that you can go back to time and time again. Not sure I will have enough courage to do the glorious picture Sue has just finished but I am working towards painting my daughter’s horses possibly as a wedding present. I’ve got over a year so I will keep practising!

    Support from Sue and the facebook group is invaluable. If I had unlimited time and unlimited funds I’d be doing every tutorial as there is so much to learn.

    I just finished the Horse Eye Tutorial by Sue Kerrigan Harris and really enjoyed every moment. Sue’s explinations are easy to follow. Also, following a video, i can stop or go back for more details and do it when I want.

    The photo and the pdf sent in advance allowed me to prepare myself and find the colors i needed. I highly recommended this style of tutorials.

    Thank you Sue

    I have had the great pleasure of participating in two online courses with Sue, one organised by Unison Colour as part of their excellent “Five Day Challenge” series, and the second directly with Sue. I had a tremendously rewarding time on both; they were not only incredibly informative and helpful to me in learning, but also great fun.

    Sue has the rare talent of being able to both do and teach, and also has the wonderful gift of being able to demonstrate techniques on the video while clearly explaining what she is doing at the same time. She is patient with questions and is happy to take them as the lesson progresses, and no question is treated as less valid than any other, whether basic or not.

    I gained real practical benefits on both courses and met a number of lovely artists and learners through them. I would recommend anyone who has an interest in learning more about pastels to look up Sue’s website or contact her directly about her courses
