Applying non-photorealistic rendering techniques to stylise portraits needs to be done with care, as facial artifacts are particularly disagreeable. This paper describes a technique for watercolour rendering that uses a facial model to preserve distinctive facial characteristics and reduce unpleasing distortions of the face, while maintaining abstraction and stylisation of the overall image, employing stylistic elements of watercolour such as edge darkening, wobbling, glazing and diffusion.
