‘Pink Moon at the Neptune’ is painted using oil and acrylic on canvas. It is a large sized painting on an artist’s high quality canvas stretcher which is warp resistant.
The painting is made using large brushstrokes and the texture of the paint and brush marks are visible on the surface of the canvas. It is painted using a combination of oil and acrylic paint which gives it extreme vibrancy and shine in some areas. In some areas of the painting the oil pigment is fluorescent which gives intense strong colour.
In 2019 I exhibited in LA and I had wanted to travel to Hearst Castle to collect images to of by the Neptune Pool which I have seen in images. Instead I ended up at The Annenberg which was designed by the same architect Julia Morgan. In the museum at The Annenberg I found letters between William Hearst and Julia Morgan and used the anecdotes and descriptions within the letters as inspiration for the new paintings which are fictional but reference the place and time.
