Mervyn was a maverick. He believed in people and helped them realise their creative dreams. Always a lover of colour and landscape Merv extended his sensibilities far and wide to people in far flung areas of the state. Memories of Mervyn's generosity will live on for a long long time through his students. I always quote him for helping me 'see' and with en plein air painting, Rest in Peace.
