This is the magical moment a talented artist paints a masterpiece in the depths of the Red Sea.

Olga Belka painted her masterpiece of model Ksenia Galata, whilst they were both attached to oxygen tanks under water.

Olga, who lives in Thailand, creates unique paintings which bring models and sea animals to life while under water.

Each of her unusual pieces of artwork requires between two and six two-hour dives to complete.

Olga started underwater painting because she wanted to capture the beauty of life under the waves, and has since created some truly unique pictures.

The Russian born diving instructor has previously stated that she finds the sea a 'constant source of inspiration' that she can share with the world.

In a statement on her website she says: 'But what do people who can’t afford scuba diving do? How can they see underwater beauties? It is impossible to render this beauty with photos and videos.

 

'Every time, while scuba diving, I wanted to capture the underwater beauty and share my impressions with other people. An artist is not a profession, it is a mission. I want to share my vision of the underwater kingdom with the world.

'That is why I do paintings underwater. For me, the sea is a boundless resource of inspiration and energy.'

Olga describes herself as a 'underwater painter' and currently teaches diving for both children and adults.

But if you want to purchase one of the bespoke items, it could set you back as much as $3000 (£2339).

Underwater paintings start at $3000 (£2339), while if you want to partake in a course to become an underwater painted it would also cost the same.

To spend the day painting with Olga underwater it would cost from $100 (£77.99).

Earlier this year, Olga hosted an exhibition of her art work, where she presented her magical creations. You can view more of Olga's paintings here.
