HARKEN ‘Lost Art’ Amsterdam [Story Development]

Story Art we created for HARKEN. The first piece in the 'lost' collection.

One of our fiction stories in work—HARKEN, a suspense thriller—involves, in part, the search for a lost trove of art from some of the Dutch Masters. So I thought it would be cool to develop the previously ‘undiscovered’ artwork to include in the story.

Here’s the root prompt I gave my graphics team to create the first ‘piece of art’ (for Amsterdam). [Note: the exact prompts developed and used are more detailed and precise.]

Woman with a lighted lantern on a canal at night in Amsterdam in the style of a Dutch Master.

The images above are the examples received. We’ll apply effects or a filter to give it a ‘cracked-oil-painting’ look to age it.
