The history of digital paint systems derives from many things-chance meetings, coincidences and boredom, artistic license, brilliant researchers, a wealthy benefactor, and, of course, lawsuits. The author tells the fascinating story-facts first, then anecdotes-in his own words. 
Because of the Pixels: On the History, Form, and Influence of MS Paint
TLDR
The author examines the technical limitations of the program, and the visible consequences produced by a mouse-driven bitmap-based graphics program, to help reconsider the culturally suppressed media that have nonetheless had significant effects on the visual culture of the contemporary participatory internet.

TLDR
The design of a software application that contains a skill database that stores expert brush stroke techniques and help the novice learn to apply the brush strokes by providing feedback based on the expert stroke is discussed. Expand
IntuPaint: Bridging the gap between physical and digital painting
TLDR
The reality-based approach in the combination of user interface and paint software is a new step forward to bridge the gap between physical and digital painting, as is demonstrated by initial user tests. Expand

Introducing artistic tools in an interactive paint system
While paint systems have been around for a long time, systems capable of capturing the complex behavior of paint media like watercolor, gouache, Oriental ink, oil and acrylic paint have emerged onlyExpand
FluidPaint: an interactive digital painting system using real wet brushes
TLDR
A new interactive canvas, accurately registering brush footprints and paint strokes in high precision has been developed, based on the real-time imaging of brushes and other painting instruments as well as thereal-time co-located rendering of the painting results. Expand
An Extensible Simulation Framework Supporting Physically-based Interactive Painting
TLDR
A physically-based, interactive paint system that supports the creation of images with watery paint, mainly target watercolor paint medium, but the model is general enough to simulate also related media like gouache and Oriental ink. Expand
