The difficult part in the learning of art, in the beginning, is 'tone' or the degree of darkness, which I still remember he understood in no time. His ability to draw with total absorption struck me as something exceptional! The work produced by him revealed at once that he had the eyes and mind of an artist, and an innate talent.

John studied the art of painting with complete involvement and extraordinary love for the subject. Sketching continuously with pencil, charcoal, crayon and sometimes with watercolour became second nature to him. He grasped immediately the peculiarities of each medium. He does not use line to define form- he paints masses and forms emerge very interestingly. There is no lack of decision in his brush-stroke, which can be the measure of an artist's sensibility. The confidence with which he handles watercolour, be it a landscape or a figure, clearly states that he is born for this.

John's work clearly states that- objective beauty exists. John expresses this beauty unhampered by incompetence. In the name of freedom of expression, he does not allow himself be carried away by impulse. He does not wear a mask. He is frank and honest. Every painting done by him says, 'This is what I am!'.
