We propose a novel image processing model that produces impressionist style paintings from photographs. Characteristics, here called impressionist constraints, are extracted from photographs and expressed as height map data. We use a constrained fractal model to generate a new image that satisfies the initial height map data constraints. Then, we enhance the characteristics extraction model and present the new resulting images. Other results are presented and illustrate the ability of our model to produce impressionist effects on a large variety of photographs.
