Jill Mail has a gift for revealing people using watercolour paint. Her exhibition at M16 includes some delightful faces and personalities in simple format face portraits. It is always fun to come face to face with another human being rendered by an artist.
The blurb reads:
As an artist who has always painted in water colour, Mail has taken on the challenge to paint portraits from life in this medium.
The artist states ‘I attempt to paint swiftly but accurately and to convey a likeness and personality of the sitter. I do not take photographs. Water colour is unforgiving but I continue to persevere & enjoy the struggle with this fascinating medium. Sometimes I am pleased with the result.’
