I was inspired by lqqkers interpretation and image crop...

After desaturating the Background, layers were rendered by duplicating the Background and applying these effects:
* Impressionist > Pencil Sketch > Detailed mono
* Photoshop > Colored Pencil
* Buzz (Simplifier 2/Edges Mono/Bright-contrast

Individual layers were combined using layer masks and blend modes.

- - - - - -

Just added a 2nd interpretation. After duplicating and flattening the 1st version I applied:
* Virtual Painter Oils (for a sort of ink-on-damp-paper look)
* Saved and opened in Painter IX for some Blender > Just add water strokes

It's all about fun Palms.

I'm glad this is my hobby and I'm not depending on it to make a living; a very big stress reliever especially after a day like today. Thanks for the complement Palms.
