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.
What you will need to bring
Since restarting our events in summer 2020, we have introduced changes to the way we operate; including reduced class sizes. The studio has been re organised to enable everyone to remain socially distant whilst at their workstation and hand sanitiser is provided. A large video screen has been mounted on the wall to enable everyone to view demonstrations from where they are working, eliminating the need to gather around the tutor. Lunch is now in the form of a packup to be eaten at your workstation; it may be served hot or cold. Drinks are available all day on a self serve basis.
Please try to arrive 15 to 20 minutes before the event begins to allow plenty of time to get settled in. The wearing of face masks is not required whilst at your workstation, but we would ask you to use one when moving about the studio.
This course / workshop is fully booked.
