ArtWork Gallery

Andrey Terebov (Kiev) has sent a letter sharing experiences with AKVIS ArtWork. Below are excerpts from the letter and comments about the paintings.

 

Andrey writes that he has long been interested in artistic photography and in methods for improving the expressiveness of his work − especially in stylization.

Andrey wanted to discuss what he felt were some interesting applications of AKVIS Artwork, primarily for beginner photographers.
