His simple approach to his first love Watercolour Painting, and stripping the mystique from the subject means his students learn to paint very quickly. In addition his patient nature, comprehensive knowledge and enthusiasm is infectious. His dry Northern humour is also a factor in his teaching style, ensuring that students not only learn fast, but also have great fun in the process.
