Abstract: This paper presents a realistic digital oil painting system, specifically targeted at the real-time performance on highly resourceconstrained
portable hardware such as tablets and iPads. To effectively use the limited computing power, we develop an efficient
adaptation of the shallow water equations that models all the characteristic properties of oil paint. The pigments are stored in
a multi-layered structure to model the peculiar nature of pigment mixing in oil paint. The user experience ranges from thick
shape-retaining strokes to runny diluted paint that reacts naturally to the gravity set by tablet orientation. Finally, the paint is
rendered in real time using a combination of carefully chosen efficient rendering techniques. The virtual lighting adapts to the
tablet orientation, or alternatively, the front-facing camera captures the lighting environment, which leads to a truly immersive
user experience. Our proposed features are evaluated via a user study. In our experience, our system enables artists to quickly
try out ideas and compositions anywhere when inspiration strikes, in a truly ubiquitous way. They do not need to carry expensive
and messy oil paint supplies.
