This is Arthur’s latest painting entitled Patience.
Arthur and I collaborated on this one. Me supplying reference material in the form of sonar shots, photos and underwater footage – Arthur creating this stunning image.
Believe me, this is exactly how K7 looked on the bottom of the lake only without the underwater visibility. And here’s an interesting twist. You see the fragment of wreckage in the foreground, the piece with the flags on. Well that was really there just off the main wreck and when Arthur painted that small piece he ground some genuine paint from the boat into a very fine powder and mixed it with his paint to get exactly the right blue.
Now here’s the deal. Arthur has very kindly allowed us to produce fifty prints to help the project and Chris at Metroimage has agreed to print them. From there they will go to Arthur who will not only sign them but will add a couple of brush strokes using the genuine ground up K7 paint making each one effectively an original.
When these are gone they’re gone so if you want one get one sooner rather than later!
