Richard Schloss’ new book, Painting the Light

Painter Richard Schloss, who has worked and exhibited in Santa Barbara since 1972, brings his half-century of experience to his brand-new book, Painting the Light. A member of Santa Barbara’s The Oak Group since its inception in 1986, Schloss nowadays has largely eschewed painting en plein air in favor of working in his studio on larger works. Schloss, who has had 35 one-person shows in the area, isn’t on the studio tour this year, but his work can also be seen in museums. Painting the Light serves simultaneously as a collection of the author’s paintings and an analysis of how light and atmosphere work in the landscape, employing nine landscape studies illustrating what happens when light enters our atmosphere to explore the effects from an artist’s perspective. Schloss will share insights at Chaucer’s Books on Wednesday, September 7.
