A B O U T

I am Sarah Manolescue, a plein air painter working direct from the subject in all seasons and weathers. Inspired by light, I seek to capture a fleeting moment in time, working alla prima (Italian for ‘at once’). I like to work on small boards; I think small often results in little gems.

'Painting light and colour in oils' is now available in paperback!

This beautiful book shows the artist how to develop their own unique way of seeing and interpreting light and colour in oils, using plein air painting as the foundation (painting outdoors direct from life). It serves as a catalyst for exploration, both out in the field, and back in the studio. Packed with finished examples and step-by-step sequences, it guides you through the beguiling challenge of painting the light, demonstrating how to say ‘just enough’ in your own work.

Buy your copy from Crowood Press or Amazon if you are UK based. International customers can place an order via Blackwells.
