The Boeing 2707-300 was illustrated by various artists for Boeing. At least 4 different styles can be found online. The two styles above were verytraditional beautifully painted but the two variants here are more styalised.
Somewhere there must be full sets of the artists impressions for all 26 option holders. Sadly only a few have made it online. But every now and again new ones get posted. The earlier versions of the Boeing SST were usually only shown by Boeing in House Colours. Individual airlines had their own artwork done, and these also appear online.IMG_20201014_220030.jpgIMG_20201014_220045.jpg62a3e9287732657dc739c1790b97a03d.jpgc38ca778311735b0feb8e39ad505b1b0.jpg

The most often seen artists impressions for the Boeing 2707 300 used the same background.
I have found it online in TWA, Delta, Qantas and KLM and JAL. There used to be one in World Airways on their fan site but this has disappeared.
As I heard it from some Douglas and McDonnell Douglas artists, the artists would paint the airline liveries over prints of the original painting then prints were made from that 'new' image. It was an accepted practice.
