The bluff

This was painted as part of a one-day painting competition as a warm up for the richest landscape in the world, next year.
100x75cm acrylic on canvas. It was my first real attempt at painting outside and thoroughly enjoyed it. It didnt get the not at the competition..i think it is too chocolate boxey for that!

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.
