Wow! This is a popular picture and what great renditions from everyone. I am always trying to improve the oil paint look and this is what I came up with:

Jayikta...
I really like your posts of Catrina, especially the watercolor effect. Could you share how you did it? I've been lurking a while and am on the lookout for any help I can get with watercolor effects.

Thanks so much for sharing.

Welcome, Chipmonk...

Glad you jumped in with a question. Jaykita is very generous when it comes to sharing "how to." Stand by for a response.

Hi chipmunk, Thanks a ton for the appreciation. Danny has said such nice things about my generosity, so how can i not try to help! But its been so long since i posted those 2. Shall do my best.
For my first creation, in ps7 -level adjustments to brighten and soften image. Then I used lighting effects for a bit of texture and oil painted look. Filter-render-lighting effects-style default, light type directional, ambience +57, ht 50. I saved and used this image to work on in painter 4. In this remarkable software, in the color palette there is a little box that says "use clone colors" - if i click on that, any brush i use turns into a lovely little clone tool!! I learnt this little trick which i'd like to share with all of you here. The more recent corel painter 8 has a clone symbol in the tools palette, isnt that right? You can well imagine, the possibilities are endless !!
Re my 2nd creation, easier. I have used a fill layer first of all to give the original catarina a bit of color. You can color a new blank layer with low opac brushes and a variety of colors and use multiply blend. Also use levels to brighten and soften image. I did another sketch layer the usual way i.e. with color dodge and gaussian blur. Increased the blur so i got a stronger sketch. I also used this little jewel called "Oscar's watercolor filter" in photobrush as main layer. Then in painter using above method of cloning, i worked my way thro, and then used the sketch layer - darken blend.
I'm sorry, this is as much as i can remember since it's been a while. Hope some of this will help.

Little Charmer

What a gorgeous little girl! I did so much that was experimental (for me) That I can't recall the steps correctly. However, basically....PSP8.01

Adjusted Col Bal, B & C, etc. duped the original layer.
Smudged her hair.
Filter/Artistic Brushes and fiddled with one of my own settings/oil paint.
Erased this effect only to allow her face to show.
Merged both layers.
Face - Spent a lot of time experimenting with smudge tool (using different brushes, different sizes, different opacity etc). Also Lighten/Darken,
Hue/Sat tools. Tools I don't normally spend enough time trying out.
I still didn't like the Oil Paint Effect on her hair, so I smudged it to smooth once again. Decided to Buzz the final result a little too.
