'The Grass Is Always Greener' by RK Schlueter



















Oil on 6" panel. Portrait Noir has always been a favorite of mine, the visual impact of mysterious characters in sketchy settings fuels my imagination and it's really fun to paint.

  1. What a strong mood. You sure have a way of revealing your subjects frame of mind and or emotional state.

  3. Your character is up close and very personal, the head covering 'touchable' but I think the eyes belie such a distant focus, mirrored in the drama of the somber hues. Lovely painting.
