He is not locked on anyone of the technics, but, he uses brushes loosely and smoothly with bright colors, the image has a sense of freedom and ease, not sinking in "overly refined" to avoid destroying the liveliness of the picture.
His sketches have flexible compositions, some are as simple with only a plain gray background and one subject, some are colorful and attractive with a clear distinction between the main and the secondary subjects, making the whole picture very harmonious.
He applies the attitude of realistic creation and uses fine drawings to express visual authenticity. But the image's composition and visual traits are emphasizing modern sight feelings in the current living environment.
