Summary Watercolor is one of the most appealing paint media enjoyed by artists around the world. Due to its complex nature, it is also one of hardest media to simulate on a computer for interactive painting applications. In this paper, we describe an extension of our previous work, MoXi, which is a system for simulating Chinese ink painting, to cover watercolor effects. These effects include backrun, granulation, and edge-darkening. A simple technique for quick post-simulation edge-darkening is also developed. We also discuss the use of the Kubulka-Munk Model for watercolor glazing composition.
