FAA to Welcome Guest, Steve Gruber
Steve Gruber is a 4th generation San Diegan who began as an artist in his boyhood. At the age of 15, he won first place in a citywide art contest juried by noted artist Robert Landry. Landry took Steve under his wing for several years and taught him the fundamentals of “the California school” of watercolor which was born out of the 1930’s impressionists who painted both the urban scene and landscapes in the state. Here is an example of Steve’s loose and colorful landscapes, this one evoking a fall scene Steve considers himself a second generation watercolorist of that style, focusing on landscapes using bold color and strokes, transparent washes and contrast, and working “en plein air “ when possible, capturing the land, harbors and hills, the farms, roads and towns around him. Steve travels widely and teaches workshops through art associations and other venues
