Misty Waymouth

Have you been part-way through a painting and thought – hey, this looks ok as it is? but of course you still worked on it because it seemed you had only just started and there was so much more detail to put in. Well, there was so much more I could have done with this one, but left it as it was. It just has that atmosphere in it that can be ellusive and completely lost when a painting is over worked.

About Mike Barr

I paint what I love - sparsely populated beaches with big skies and wide shallows and rain-drenched city streets that sparkle with reflective light.
Of course, both these places are animated with human activity, such as beach walkers or those braving the elements of a rainy day,
and they add to the appeal of such scenes.

The sky usually plays a large part in my work.
From a very young age I have been fascinated with clouds and the moods of the sky and have always loveed a stormy day.
It is no surprise then that this is translated into my work.

My paintings aren't acquired because they match the curtains - they are windows in themslves.
They offer glimpses of where we have been or where we would like to be - places where the soul can linger for a while an rest.
