    Color transformation based on the basic color categories of a painting

Session/Category Title:   Color & Focus



    Each painter renders a painting in her own style. This style can be distinguished by looking at elements such as motif, color, shape deformation and texture. Previously, [Hertzmann et al. 2001] suggested a method for applying the texture of an image to a photograph. In this paper, we will focus on the element of “color”.
