We propose a fast novel multispectral texture model with an analytical solution for both parameter estimation as well as unlimited synthesis. This Gaussian random field type of model combines a principal random field containing measured multispectral pixels with an auxiliary random field resulting from a given function whose argument is the principal field data. The model can serve as a stand-alone texture model or a local model for more complex compound random field or bidirectional texture function models. The model can be beneficial not only for texture synthesis, enlargement, editing, or compression but also for high accuracy texture recognition.
