Stock Schlueter is a painter from northern California, who excels at capturing the light and atmosphere of that region, as well as more exotic locations from his travels.
Previously a watercolor artist, Schlueter switched to oils, and works both on location and in the studio for his landscapes. His website has a portfolio of both plein air and studio work, as well as a selection of portraits.
On his blog, you will find both, often reproduced larger, along with descriptions of the locations and conditions for the individual paintings.
I particularlry enjoy some of Schlueter’s more unusual subjects, like industrial night scenes and weathered old trucks in snow.
