Phoenix, AZ (PRWEB) August 26, 2008
Award-winning artist John Michael is proud to announce the launch of his new website, http://www.artedel.com. The fine-art website is called Arte Del Ritratto (The Art of Portrait) and has been designed to exhibit John Michael's digital art and photography illustrations.
"Digital photography illustration is an exciting combination of straight forward photography and fine art, expressionist painting," said John Michael. "It's exciting to know that I can take a rather ordinary portrait and through digital enhancement, I can bring out the best in the image or the person by adding excitement, adding interesting drama and vibrant energy, and enhancing the colors. I like to call them Portraits with Pizzaz."
"As a former professional photographer, I appreciate the work that goes into a photo shoot. I also know how frustrating it can be when those images are less than spectacular. That is why I'm now working with photographers, helping to take their photography portraits and turning them into spectacular works of art."
The beautifully designed website highlights the artist's outstanding photography illustration and provides an artist bio, artist statements, details about Arte Del Ritratto, and a variety of exhibits. Future expansion will include the artist's digital art work.
