His paintings depict the mysticism of old city, riverscape, rural landscape, mountains and nature. His bold capture of lights and shades in his paintings yet projects a soft tone of atmosphere. His sailboats, horses, flowers, streets, railway stations all create a distinct enigma in the clam and quiet locale as depicted in his paintings.
