Phyllis - I guess I was in too much of a rush to get to the digital darkroom! Thanks for reminding me to get the 'whole story'.
Alex - yes, a beautiful girl - a beautiful picture! Thanks for sharing with us!
With kind regards,
Bill C

Well, I am not a he, but a she.
My name is Alexandra Macedo.
This is a photo I took from my 4 year old cousin.
I am not an artist and only am learning photoshop
on free time (not much) for a month or two.
I am trying to make a nice rendition for this one too, but could not make one I like till now.
There is a bigger photo in my gallery.

Thanks to everyone for your artistic renditions.

Thank you for the image, Alexandra. She is a beautiful girl and you have captured it all!
Beautiful work by everone here on this! I sought to emphasize the eyes. If ever a real girl had Renoir eyes, she does! So that's the way I went, with some romantic, soft color; some spray strokes, and a lot of curves detail

All of these are so beautiful!

Bill C, she looks wrapped in cotton or in fog! She's so pretty and soft.

Bill M, I love the textures and muted colors.

Amanda, your oil rendition is wonderful.

For this one, I played with the dodge/negative layer, only used a soft filter at its highest settings, making a soft colored outline. Merged this layer, made one layer at multiply mode, another at normal mode but low opacity. Then I added a light texture.

Hello Everyone!

Great work.. I especially like Bills. The lighting.. and her eyes.. Wow!

Here is mine. I was just playing with layers and masks. I first made a sketch using the Gausian Blur, and put a crosshatch filter on it. I then duplicated the original layer and ran a watercolor filter on it. I masked that layer and painted in the background. I then created another layer from the original and played with the saturation, masked it out, and painted in her face very lightly.

Added a few highlights.. ANd that was it.
