HARKEN ‘Lost Art’ Barcelona [Story Development]

HARKEN–in part–is about the search for a lost trove of art. To complement the suspense thriller story, we’re creating the ‘undiscovered’ artwork. Each painting is found in a specific location and setting relevant to where the story takes the audience. The first was Amsterdam; the above images are for Barcelona.

Here’s the root prompt I gave my graphics person to add to and create the second ‘piece of art.’

A man in 1600s Barcelona standing on a pier in front of a sailing ship at sunset in the style of a Dutch Master.

The images are the examples received. We’ll select one to represent that ‘piece of art,’ and apply effects to give it a ‘cracked-oil-painting’ look to age it. The ‘art’ will then be incorporated into the story development and writing.
