"Yes, there's a really good method that I haven't seen taught anywhere. I mix up oil paint (depending on what colour) and apply it onto the paper, rub it back with some tissue, wait for it to dry a bit, as certain colours take a while to dry. It's always interesting how some pastels go on the paint, some don't. Then I apply pastel over the top of that using the edge of the pastels for the stalks of the trees and to create depth. I try and keep the flow going when I'm immersed in a painting. People have never seen this method used before and I find the whole process quite intriguing." His love for teaching is evident as he quietly explains the joy he gains from watching students experiment and grow.
