This is watercolor painting of my husband and my cat looking out the window on a Saturday morning. My husband had on his cozy sweater and was eating cereal. They are both actually bird watching. I included the furniture because I felt that it helped to set a mood of "Home". I used strong intense colors and had a lot of fun painting this.

Getting to Know Kathleen

Kathleen Giles is a self-taught watercolorist who captures figures employing a realist style that sets a high standard for a traditionally tricky medium. She has been painting professionally for over 20 years, and credits her mastery of watercolor to understanding the properties of the paints. Kathleen says she never uses black paint, and she applies underpaintings of yellow and pink for warmth. “I use a lot of yellow in my work because it adds a beautiful glow,” she says. The luminosity Kathleen creates brings each subject to life. When she’s not working on her own artworks, she also teaches workshops across the United States and co-hosts a weekly cable television show called “Watercolors with Jody and Kathy.”
