Camera-Assisted Digital Painting with Virtual Brushes

These two pictures were taken on the roadside of the Strip Street in Las Vegas from my recent trip. The first picture was painted with less than 10 minutes by the artist in the second picture. Very impressive! 

Could computer vision technology be used for creating digital arts? 

Recently I came across an article discussing how a camera is used to assist creating digital paining. The following YouTube video shows an interesting demo.

Colorful objects are tracked to draw the corresponding color in the demo. Simple computer vision techniques are used, such as object tracking and color recognition. Obviously there is still a big gap to create a picture similar to the one we just showed. However it is an interesting application of computer vision technologies.
