...When Herbert Geuter, Alec, and I, retired in 1974, we agreed to work together making colour and form the starting point for painting, and to explore the potentials of abstract art. In choosing subjects which would call for rich colour we turned to mythology and Eastern cultures. For us this meant an eye opening study of the classics and eastern literature, which for Herbert Geuter was familiar ground. He helped us also to appreciate the books, "Creative Imagination" by Ibn Arabi and "The Philosophy Of Freedom" by Rudolf Steiner.

We evolved a method of work in which he would indicate by a rough sketch a composition of some chosen theme from which we made further sketches. Having selected one of these Dr. Geuter and I translated it into a small version in colour. Alec developed this into a water-colour painting on a large scale which took considerable time to complete. It was the beginning of many years of cooperation. Sadly Herbert Geuter died in 1983. Nevertheless Alec was able to continue the series of pictures which we had already worked on together in sketches and small paintings, so that by 1994 fifty-six pictures were completed.

...It is the use of watercolour of a quality that I've rarely seen, he understands watercolour very profoundly as a real craftsman...."
