Veronica Rowney Gross creates stunning imagery with transparent watercolor. Her paintings glow with natural light and an exquisite, soft, cohesive color palette, preferring the plein-aire approach. "If weather and time do not permit me to finish a painting at the scene, I make a small watercolor sketch and drawing so that I retain that first impression when translated to a sheet of paper in the studio. I don't feel that I ‘own' the image if I rely just on a photograph." She also carries some of those themes to more abstract compositions and extends her artistic expression with other media including printmaking. Her extensive art training includes a Bachelor's in Fine Arts from CA State University, Hayward, further studies at the Leo Marchutz School/Institute for American University, Aix-en-Provence, France, and she has studied with notable painters throughout the years. Veronica was a credentialed art instructor and District Visual Arts Coordinator for thirty years with the East Side Union High School District of San Jose, now retired. Veronica won first place in the 47th Watercolor West International Juried Exhibition, 2015, and is now a Signature Member of Watercolor West. She participated in the Los Gatos Plein Air Competition in June 2017 and 2019, and has been juried into many local, national and international exhibitions. She is active with the Allied Artists West, the Santa Clara County Watercolor Society and the Los Gatos Art Association Plein Air Group. Veronica shows her work at Viewpoints Gallery in Los Altos and Gallery 24 in Los Gatos.
