From a very young age he was influenced by the masters Raphael, Rembrandt, Vermeert and Tiepolo, whose works he admired in the Louvre. He is also influenced by the impressionist works and in particular the works of Renoir both in the themes and in the rendering of the light effects in his works. Post-impressionist painters who heralded Fauvism and Expressionism, his gaze holds Van Gogh back, and his literary spirit is inspired by the writings of Paul Valery.
His themes are often close to him, he paints the seaside and landscapes of Normandy, views of Paris, portraits of his wife. In his painting he also inserts gipsies, bohemian female figures which reveal his artistic sensitivity. He paints delicate portraits, and landscapes which take up again the impressionist techniques using the plays of light and the harmony of the colors while bringing a rhythm and a personal vision to it. The expressions, and the hands of Marcel Dyf's portraits translate his will to tell stories through the figures he paints.
