Pebble Beach #18 - Original

Pebble Beach #18, par 5, 543 yards, is located at the Pebble Beach Golf Links in Pebble Beach, CA. It is considered one of the most famous par fives in the world, along with Azalea #13 at Augusta National Golf Club. I was commissioned to paint this hole to use for reproductions as off-set lithographs to sell in retail stores around the nation, including Golf Galaxy. I have since spent many hours updating the original oil painting and now offer the new version on fine art paper, canvas and metal. The original was painted in oils on a 24”x 36” canvas that wraps around 1.5” stretcher bars. It is ready to hang, although can be framed. The original is in a gallery in Pinehurst, North Carolina. Please contact me if interested in the original!

About Canvas

I use 1 ½” stretcher bars with the image wrapped around the sides so you can hang without a frame. If you would like to frame your canvas art, please let me know in the contact information and I will stretch on ¾” bars. Same price. All canvas art is ready to hang.

The Canvas we use is a 22 MIL, 400 GSM Poly-Cotton solvent canvas and is archival certified, OBA-Free. Urth (Can you add a trademark symbol after this? Couldn’t find it.) is the world’s first solvent canvas with archival certification. It is specifically designed for the high-end fine art market and utilizes “Chromata White” optical brightener additive-free and Fluorescent Whitening agent-free breakthrough technology. “Chromata White” gives the most stable platform on which to print fine art works without the metamerism issues or color shifts issues inherent on other canvases. Optical Brighteners compromise the attainment of true color, they complicate profiling accuracy, and they inevitably deteriorate and yellow over time. Ever noticed how a print can look identical under one light source, yet show remarkable differences in color when viewed under a different light source? This problem is “metamerism’. When OBA’s are used in inkjet media, the metamerism exacerbates exponentially. Because this product is manufactured OBA-free, you are assured that your print will look consistent under different lighting conditions.
