East Winds, on the beautiful island of Saint Lucia has appointed wildlife artist Brin Edwards to work even more closely with the hotel over the coming year.
He will be in residence again at East Winds, week commencing 21 November, and guests will have the opportunity to meet with him socially during the week and there will be a relaxed talk one evening with drinks. Guests can join Brin sketching in the gardens, with casual teaching sessions in the outdoor pavilion, concentrating on landscapes and botanical subjects in watercolour.
Guests in-house will be invited to join any of these activities during the week and there will be no supplements for participation.
Brin is a long standing member of the UK’s SWLA Society of Wildlife Artists and works mainly in oils, concentrating on birds as wildlife subjects. He is particularly interested in the effects of light, often using light as the starting point for the paintings – the birds then follow.
You can see this clearly in his work which captures the iridescent shine of light perfectly. They are colourful and textured depictions of wildlife. The movement of these creatures is captured, with his strong surrounding brushstrokes it surrounds the creatures creating a frame in which the eye is guided perfectly to the focal point of the image.
