He was a prolific artist, painting almost invariably in watercolours, occasionally in oils. He specialised in marine watercolour studies, travelling up and down the coast by ship and sketching scenes that he later turned into paintings. Mainly painting Sydney Harbour, including views and individual ships. His watercolours are characterised by a high key and strong atmospheric effects.
