This is a watercolor painting of a diner that is local to me in western New York state. I always take pictures while I am there. I felt that this scene told the story that I so often see of people sitting at the counter waiting to be served. I love the ketchup and condiment holders and want to paint a close up of one soon.

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.”
