He derives much of his inspiration from the dramatic and varied Scottish scenery, and his paintings reflect his unique interpretation of our stunning landscapes. The coastlines, seascapes, cliffs and rock formations lend themselves to the use of palette knives to create layers of texture.
Bruce works mainly in oils, using both brush and palette knife to create paintings with style and depth. He is always keen to experiment with vivid colours capturing the beauty of Scottish countryside with a fresh twist.
