I wanted to see what could be done with just filters. And surprise, surprise I actually liked the result.

I extracted the model from the background and gave her sophistication a step downward by placing her in front of an old barn. I tweaked the old wood by using hue/sat and then merged the result. I made a copy of the barn and applied a very heavy motion blur to it. I applied a filter I had never tried called reticulation and followed that by using emboss and high pass. This layer was overlayed with the layer below and merged. I then made a copy of that new merged layer and moved it above the model and applied the overlay mode with a greatly reduced opacity.

The motion blur was applied on the model to a much less degree than the barn; then I used several filters to achieve a look I was pleased with. The next to last step was copy merged and angled strokes was used twice. After all was said and done, I decided to use the channel mixer and make the whole thing grayscale. Go figure; all that work and I liked the b/w version the best.

I should have looked at this one first. Did you use Artist's Oils on "Lady with a Rose" also?

Thank you very much for your good words!
I use Artist's Oils (Painter 9) on "Lady with a Rose" also.
But I can use also other Painter's brushes. Oil brushes, Blender...

Extracted the lass, desaturated and duplicated.
Back on original layer extracted lips.
On lass 1 layer, applied crosshatch filter, switched to overlay mode and blended with lass 2 layer.
Moved lips layer to top of stack and switched to overlay.
Put these three layers into a layer group, Moved group, lasso, inverse selection, feather to 25, delete.

Created back ground with a solid fill layer.
New pattern layer>noise pattern.
