I met Dan a long time ago in one of his workshops and I was amazed at first by his approach and his distinctive use of blue and teal tones as well as his skin tones. He has a different touch and uniqueness of his own. He emphasizes in finding your own style but in the same time you will find difficult to break this chain with his colours.
