Learning Oriental Ink Painting

Using reinforcement learning to make a computer paint like an oriental Sumi-e artist isn't just a matter of shouting "well done" - and yet when you look at the results that's what you want to do... The difference is that unlike western stroke based painting which uses layers of strokes to build up an image Sumi-e restricts its strokes in number - it is a minimalist approach to stroke based painting. The appearance of the stroke is determined by the shape of an object to paint, the path and posture of the brush, and the distribution of pigments in the brush. The program models a soft brush agent that makes a sequential decision on which direction to move in and it is rewarded according to the gracefulness of the strokes it used in drawing arbitrary shapes.
