Ivan Shishkin was always a huge inspirations for me in terms of landscape painting. I've been thinking to recreate some of the environments from his painings for quite some time. Finally I manage to have enough time and skills to try it out.
It was very interesting challenge to deconstruct the painting, see what was simplified and what was pushed a bit more in terms of colors and shapes.
Also I was trying to imagine different time of the day and weather scenarios
As always all the scene work was done in Clarisse with some bg and grading in Photoshop
