Henry Vermillion is a Texan who has lived in San Miguel for 30 years. He co-founded, with his wife Britt Zaist, Galeria Izamal, which operated for twenty-nine years. He is a figurative painter and has been leading a Tuesday Life figure drawing session for over forty years.
“My own painting and drawing tends to be figurative or expressionist, I would say, and is rather loosely done. Aside from a technical exercise, there's certainly no point in trying to compete with a lens. A human figure or face can express almost everything that is important to me, and a good painting or drawing can express those things better than a lens.”
