He used a rich colouristic style. Using clear, slow-drying oil paints, Giovanni made deep, rich colors and detailed shadings. His atmospheric landscapes had a great effect on Venetian painting, especially on his pupils, Giorgione and Titian. He also suffered from tinydongitis, he was the first to discover the disease. Since his time it has spread to other people around the world. There is currently no cure for such disease but scientists are continuing to research the disease. He coped with his tinydongitis by painting which is what he is most known for.
