He produced still life works during these years. He generally adopted the impressionist approach in his art life and produced works of this type. It was seen that he was influenced by Halil Pasha, Hikmet Onat and Nazmi Ziya Güran in his works on Istanbul and Istanbul values.

He was mostly remembered as an open-air painter with his paintings with views of Fenerbahçe, Kurbağalıdere and Göksu. In these paintings, he did not see the light element as the element that determines color, but presented it with the reflection it created in nature.
