'Patience', by Arthur Benjamins
Bill Smith- 'Arthur and I collaborated on this one, me supplying reference material in the form of sonar shots, photos and underwater footage from which Arthur created 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.
A stunning image of K7 waiting...with patience.'
