My vast (couple of weeks) experience with Painter, has taught me that there is a lot of work to be done on a photo before applying the "arty" stuff. So in this case you have to adjust the luminosity and colours first, so that the details you want will later hit the programs "sweet spot", and not just get lost.

What a lovely photo! I tweaked it in PS and didn't even want to paint - so nice it was.
After painting, while sharpening the brush strokes (back in CS2) I aimed for <Unsharp Mask> and accidentally hit <Smart Sharpen>, just loved the result!

Here's my take on the picture

Unfortunately I don't remember the steps since I got interrupted several times and the history was way too small, but it's made of 3 layers, each with a different color..

Edit: I think it's oil painting, sumi-e and aquarell with oilpainting being the top layer and sumi-e the mid layer where I deleted several tree parts..

Oil on Canvas redux.

Still trying various methods to oilify my oil simulation. I using PS's Glass filter to help. I'm also using GIMP's GREYCstoration to smooth out some extraneous noise. Not 100% happy (no actual brush strokes which I'm still trying to find a replacement for PS's Angled Strokes), but I hope the result is presentable anyway.

Very nice picture to play with.
