This paper proposes a method for analyzing the color characteristics of woodblock prints having oil-based ink and rendering realistic images based on camera data. The analysis results of woodblock prints show some characteristic features in comparison with oil paintings: 1) A woodblock print can be divided into several cluster areas, each with similar surface spectral reflectance; and 2) strong specular reflection from the influence of overlapping paints arises only in specific cluster areas. By considering these properties, we develop an effective rendering algorithm by modifying our previous algorithm for oil paintings. A set of surface spectral reflectances of a woodblock print is represented by using only a small number of average surface spectral reflectances and the registered scaling coefficients, whereas the previous algorithm for oil paintings required surface spectral reflectances of high dimension at all pixels. In the rendering process, in order to reproduce the strong specular reflection in specific cluster areas, we use two sets of parameters in the Torrance-Sparrow model for cluster areas with or without strong specular reflection. An experiment on a woodblock printing with oil-based ink was performed to demonstrate the feasibility of the proposed method.
