Ray has generous patience; quietly guiding his students through the wet-on-wet painting technique. Amazing results can be seen within minutes of the first brush strokes being applied. Clouds appear with a magical realism. Mountains and rivers can be formed with substance, distance and dramatic features. Ray encourages experimentation – you are in charge of creating the scene that inspires you. Ray gently hints at how to achieve the effect. In a day a painting will be produced that is very pleasing, not least because you can feel it is all your own work.
