Warhol Asparagus

Title: Warhol-style Asparagus
22"wx28"h Digital Interpretation

I took a picture of our asparagus before dinner last night and used Corel Painter 11 to make this digital painting. It is based on a tutorial found in one of my favorite "how-to" books: Digital Painting Fundamentals with Corel Painter X by Rhoda Grossman.

How much do I like this book? Well, let's just say I took it with me to read while I got a pedicure today. I found it more compelling than People magazine. Need I say more?

Love this - it's really fun! Hubby managed to get me a copy of the magazine today, and I think I'll have to put that book on my Amazon wishlist in time for my birthday next month!

Thank you, angeltreats and Kevin!

I'm glad you were able to obtain the magazine, angeltreats. I hope you'll be posting your Painter projects on your blog so we can see them!

Oh I will!

I wondered if you'd seen these - Richard bought me one (vol 2) as well as the magazine and it's full of tutorials and really cool stuff - definitely worth picking up.

Angeltreats, I also have Volume 2 of that magazine but couldn't get my hands on Volume 1. Thank you so much for the link. I will be ordering it ASAP!
