Behind The Artwork: Theudho - De roep van het woud (2018)

For the new album, I wanted to stay away from digital art or photography. Given the theme and title of the album, a woodland scene seemed appropriate. I was looking at a lot of paintings from the 18th and 19th century, however, the problem with using a traditional painting as cover art is of course that others may have already used it before you.

To avoid this issue, I chose to alter an “unusable” painting by the Russian painter Ivan Ivanovich Shishkin, namely “Rain in an Oak Forest”. The people were edited out, the trees rearranged and the colours modified to fit the final vision.
