As an impressionist oil painter, Sarah Evans paints to capture the color and pattern of what’s out there.  Color is her mania…color affected by light; and since gardens are where the color is, she loves to paint gardens and California landscapes.


“I paint exclusively in oils because they are so gutsy, excitingly rich, with unctuous colors and they provide great texture.  The way I prefer to work is to start a painting on location, en plein air as the French Impressionists did, and paint as much as possible before the light, shadows and colors change as the sun moves.  Then I finish back at the same spot, same light, or in my studio, working from memory, small studies or photos taken at the very beginning of the painting.”
