I've struggled with this for 2 days, trying to get something a little different. I cannot remember the steps.
Selected seabirds from previous image and added to heron
Filtered each separately, and bg
Various blends
hue/sat
Painter 8 for 3D and canvas texture
PS for apply image and tweaking

Woah kiska - that's trippy.

I finally got my hands on the MS Impressionist and am totally blown away by it. I dont' know how I made this. Reminds me of of a Japanese painting.

Hadn't heard/read that expression in a number of years, but in this case it's apropos (in a good way).

Congrats on getting Impressionist installed. Pretty neat plugin, eh? Great results on this one.

Keep 'em coming.

kiska--I didn't read your directions and just looked at the pic. I thought I was going nuts seeing birds in the background.

Brandon--nicely done--you're going to have fun with impressionist.

I tried 2 different things and then wound up blending them together.

lower layer: buzz gloss stack (all set to around 5 except remove around 400). Select black and invert. Paint image back in with history brush. Impressionist (can't remember which preset)

upper layer: convert to cymk. duplicate black channel and convert back to rgb. load black channel as a selection. impressionist--dirty sketch (a new one I'll post later this week).

blended layers together and added a pattern fill layer in soft light.

Hello - I was playing around this morning to duplicate yesterdays Impressionist efforts and came pretty close to what I had so here are the settings.

1) Choose the Charcoal default setting
2) Set brush size to 130%, Coverage 90%, Pressure 60%
3) Either use the Paper (under more controls) effect using canvas with a bias setting of 1 or 2 or use the PS texturizer to create the 'painted on canvas' look.

Play with the pressure setting to get the best results with the image you are working with.

Good luck,
Brad

Thanks Kiska--I think impressionist addict would be a good title for me. I have to work to remember there's more to photoshop (and my plug-in collection) than impressionist.
