Edgars Vinters has mostly painted nature – at the beginning in watercolor and later oil technique. During the 1950s and 1960s, he emphasized the illustration of seasons in nature, cityscapes, and the river Daugava. During the 1970s he turned to the houses and memorials of painters, writers, actors, and singers and continued to paint cityscapes. During the end of the 1990s Edgars shortly turned to different watercolor techniques. At the end of his life, Vinters painted mostly his garden in Purvciems and still lives with flowers.

In the work of Edgars Vinters, one can find lights and shadows during the daytime and the changes of seasons. The artist has pictured the diversity of clouds in different weather conditions, the freshness of the color during the spring, the saturated color tones of the summer and the autumn as well as the colors and harshness of the winter landscape.
