Editing based on historical painting colors

2 months 1 day ago #696864 by FlyingDutchMan95
Hi,

Its maybe hard to explain but I'll give it a shot. I photographed several historical Dutch cities and now I want to give them sort of a 16-17th century color style like the paintings from that era. If I look at those paintings on the internet I see several important colors: brown, orange, yellow-ish and green.

I added a few examples. Any advice on how to add these colors to my photos in Lightroom? Just a simple preset? So my goal is to change the colors based on those used in the 16-17th century paiting, I think that would look cool on historical Dutch sights.
