Wanda, just lovely, as usual!

On this one I used a dashed circle smudge brush size 41 on the hair only, after overlaying an outline and treating it with anisotropic diffuse, sharpening, and high contrast to empty it of specks, some of which I had to paint away before overlaying in hard light on the original, then sharpening, adjusting levels and saturation to intensify. The effect looks to me a little bit like a watercolor done with a fine brush.

I realize that several beautiful "paintings" have been done, and I don't think anyone could outdo Amanda and Wanda's submission. (and yes, I realize that isn't the point, - I'm trying to compliment them on wonderful jobs they have done)

But when I went to work on this pretty little girl, I couldn't resist trying to "paint" her.

First thing I did was to straighten her head so it was upright. Even though all my measuring showed that she was indeed straight, there was still a bit of the feeling that her head was slightly tilted. Don't know if it is the way her hair flowed, or what. So I made my background with a bit of direction, and it seems to have compensated for that, and I don't think it overpowers the image. I'd love to know what you all think.

I also softened her pout a bit. I wanted her to have a slightly mysterious look instead of a pouty look. I also decided against adding a texture this time. I liked it the way it was.

Phyllis, thank you. I really love your interpretation. I like the texture you have achieved using the smudge tool. Great work, as usual I'm going to experiment with what you did, thanks!

Tyeise, thank you for your kind comments. What you have done is awesome. Yours and Amanda's treatment reminds me of the children you see painted during the Victorian era. My favorite era, by the way. I know what you mean about wanting to paint her Lovely!!!

Wanda! Nice to see you again. Welcome home!

This tutorial was used to create the basis for this version. I used the Wave filter to squiggle some lines, too.

Thank you, Bubba, for a very cute pic.

Thanks Goldcoin. You made her look like she's cowering in a cave - Is she a young Becky in Tom Sawyer?

Tyeise Actually she is guarding her juice cup from the Bully of boy that has his hand out...:

Love the painted effect that Murray Harkavy showed us in her work. But don't have a Mac and the software she uses in about $400.00.
So I'm working on trying to duplicate it .....close or same effect with what I have. Maybe a bit overpowering with that young face, but I rather liked it. Back to the drawing board....
