Description

Watercolour and bodycolour over pencil.
Goodwin left the Isle of Wight for Barbados on 22nd January 1902 accompanied by his daughter Edytha. He travelled aboard the W.I.M.S. Trent as a guest of his friend Arthur McConnell and they arrived on 2nd February. Soon afterwards the Goodwins boarded the R.M.S. Eden and continued to St. Vincent, Grenada and Trinidad. Goodwin found the exotic colours and wildlife inspirational and he sketched ceaselessly. It was his first trip to the West Indies and he returned in 1912, the date of the present work.
