Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea

Art by Ted Koch.
Marvelous Ted Koch paintnig of Seaview.

Ted writes:The painting of the Seaview (above) was created in airbrush. The Seaview and undersea environment were detailed with specially formulated airbrush paints. Each area that was painted required masking. The completed Seaview was outlined and detailed with various thicknesses of technical pens.

Next, the picture composition was
