That sketch was just outstanding..... very very nice. Can't wait to see if I can even come close. Thanks for the great steps.
Steve, I love the colored version...wow!
TPaul, that's a great quick oil painting look...just enough canvas texture to look realistic.
Danny, lots of detail in that outline version... I can think of many uses for it.
Andrew, I especially like the greens in this...on the trees and in the water...looks "just right" to me. And all that from a single filter? Wow! Well, if you didn't get to be creative on the pic itself, at least you came up with a creative title for it!
Another candidate for my virtual painter spree.

Cloned out the couple.
Duplicated layer (BG copy #1) and set Brightness = 15, contrast = 20.
Duplicated layer (BG copy #2).
On BG copied #1 apply cutout (8,3,3)
Selected BG copy #2, set blend to soft light and opacity to 80%.
Applied smart blur (2,20,low,normal)
Set Hue =5, Saturation =20
Applied Art Paper texture
Never getting old.
Another Impressionist made rendering. Used Unplugged Colors Saturation filter (unfortunately the Unplugged filters are no longer free; I will one day purchase the Unplugged X filters; fortunate that I still have a copy of the free filters) to enhance the color saturation. Also used Unplugged Tools Renaissance filter to both primitize further the rendering as well as despeckle the white areas (remnants from Impressionist filter process). Also did some smudging for additional cleanup.
