Had another go starting in Painter.
Using Fine Camel Brush on hair
later blending with Rd. Blender Brush
Face - Simple Round Wash Brush
Blended with Rd. Blender Brush
Simple cloner to bring back detail of eyes
mouth, straps, necklace and hair.
Opened in PSP8.1
Spent a great deal of time smudging
cloning, darken/lighten tools.
Some lovely entries as always!
1. Duplicate Image
2. Desaturate new layer
3. Levels adjustment: Slide the white point slider far enough to almost blow out the whites and then slide the grey point slider to the right to bring back some detail.
4. Add a little Gaussian Blur (but bring back the sharpness to the eyes, mouth, and nose).
5. Duplicate Gaussian Blur Layer
6. Apply a Vignette
7. Duplicate layer
8. Apply Artistic Filter – Plastic Wrap. Set mode to Soft Light. This will further brighten your image
Love the radiant glow you added.
I really like the posterized results!
Stunning results with Painter. It now has a lovely soft glow. I also really like the leaf border. It frames her face nicely. Excellent work!
I really like the pen line strokes. They give the photo an artistic sketch feel.
Axeluk that is very beautifully done...
T Paul wow i am impressed and took the notes to try myself.
Hard to compete with all these wonderful entries but here's my attempt at a tutorial in current issue of Digital Photo Effects. I hope the resizing to upload hasn't lost too much.

I haven't messed with Painter in awhile....
Preparation in Photoshop:
* Duplicated Background
* Applied Impressionist #djroils 24 3-times
* Duplicated Background again and dragged to top of layer stack.
* Applied Impressionist #djroils 24 1-time to this layer and applied a layer mask. Airbrushed black on the layer mask to reveal some of the layer below.
* Duplicated Background again and dragged to top of layer stack and added a Hide All layer mask. Airbrushed layer mask to restore eye and mouth detail.
* Added a new layer and merged all visible (Alt + Ctrl + Shift + E)
* Applied Photoshop Brush Strokes > Spatter for a little variation
* Saved, duplicated the image and flattened the duplicate
* Opened the duplicate in Painter
* Applied the Grainy brushes from the Blender group to give it more of a brushed look
* Closed Painter.
* Opened in Photoshop and applied some Unsharp mask
* Added another layer, filled with 50% gray and applied Texturizer filter
* Lowered texture layer opacity to about 30%
* Cropped and saved.
Whew... Just in time to go watch Super Bowl XXXIX.

Update: Per Christine's suggestion below on a second version (built basically the same way as described above) I applied Painter's Surface Effects function which did indeed bring out the stroke texture.
Thank's again, Christine.

Christine, that is terrific , I love it and PLEASE tell us how.
Danny - Well may you say WHEW, this is marvellous and worth all the effort, I'm sure, to achieve such a rare result.
