About the Course

With the highly talented Brin Edwards explore ways of depicting  birds and other wildlife in a vibrant lively manner, building up your picture with areas of bold flat colour, giving the impression of the subject without fussing over fine detail. Using Acrylics will enable you to overlap colours and work quickly, also 'mistakes' can be easily rectified, which will help to build your confidence! This promises to be an exciting and rewarding day, at the end of which you will leave with some finished work to be truly proud of.

About the Artist

Brin Edwards’ fascination with the natural world began during early childhood in Singapore, where he was captivated by the colourful tropical species in his back garden. At university he studied towards a career in scientific research, however he soon realised that his interest was more in the visual than the theoretical. He gradually started to get his illustrations published and built up a folio of work for a variety of UK and European book and magazine publishers. In recent years he has developed a more personal and expressive way of depicting the natural world in his oil paintings. This looser, more atmospheric approach acts as an antidote to the precision of his illustration work. Now living and working in the beautiful Suffolk countryside, much of the inspiration for Brin’s paintings comes from close to home.
