We propose a non-photorealistic rendering method for generating watercolor-like images from color photographs. The proposed method is performed in two steps. First, images with flow patterns created by tracing with a brush are generated with an anisotropic filter. Second, watercolor-like images are generated by coloring that corresponds to the absolute values of the color differences between the image processed by the bilateral filter and the original image. To evaluate performance of the proposed method for generating watercolor-like images, we conduct experiments using example images.
