He paints rapidly, mixing paints and styles with energetic force, creating textures impossible to produce by painting alone. He displays a number of interesting effects skillfully, at times painting over worked surface. He plays with form, sometimes large figures dominating the surface while at others suggestions of form are barely visible. He has always explored the range and shape of his art, which makes some of his works imaginative and at times abstract. That's the reason some of his masterpieces bear unmatched quality of colour selection, texture and translucence. Thus his works, whether executed in oils or water colours, graphic art or pastel, all presents a beautiful array of high standards of creativity, splendour and his own sensitivities towards life, nature and his country's peculiar environment.
