Arbor Vitae Landscape Painting Marathon – with Fran O’Neill

Summer 2020

Course Description

The environment of Old Westbury Gardens provides a diverse, grand and stunning setting for participants to immerse themselves in landscape painting. During this two week intensive course, students will work from direct observation. With changing light conditions and the weather, students will be challenged to explore image making, composition, form, value and hue. Highly individual critiques will take place, along with group critiques, throughout the day to enable students to learn from one another and to increase their ability to read paintings. This Marathon is designed for all wanting to invigorate their painting practice, break out of their comfort zone, and expand their visual vocabulary.
