This paper looks at a method of blending different artistic filters together to create a range of artistic effects. Instead of using a single painterly rendering technique, the methods used in three different filters can be blended together in a user defined way. The filters are arranged in a triangular structure where the user defines their chosen painting style by choosing a point in the triangle. This allows users to effectively create their own painting style and experiment with a range of different artistic effects.
