Inspired by painters who have worked outdoors, from the Impressionists onwards, Bruce Mulcahy has, for over twenty years, been producing his landscapes on the spot in all seasons and weathers.The practical difficulties of this are put to one side as the vital thing for Bruce Mulcahy is to be able to react directly to the subject - its colours, textures and light - to try to show something of what was special about a particular place at a particular time.

His materials (oil, gouache or acrylic) provide the strength of colour and tone and allow the variety of marks to be made which together suggest what it was like to be in front of the scene itself, where, as Bruce Mulcahy puts it, "something said 'Stop. Paint here'".

Bruce Mulcahy's work is in Private Collections across the U.K. and other countries including Ireland, France, Holland, Germany, Italy, U.S.A., Canada, Australia, Japan.
