Yes, a smudge.

More accurately, a GREYCstoration assisted smudge (a few other friends involved tool, but that's my secret).

This one is a little "out there," but since I was experimenting with the AKVIS sketch plugin, that's OK:
* Image > Image size: Width 12", 80 ppi
* Base layer created by opening up shadows and her eye color with levels and boosting saturation
* AKVIS sketch applied to a copy of Base
* VP Oils applied twice to sketch layer to ket the wet paint on paper look
* Paint Engine > Wetter applied to sketch layer for more wet look
* Base layer duplicated and dragged to top of layer stack, hide all layer mask added, blend mode changed from Normal to Color
* Base layer duplicated and dragged to top of layer stack, hide all layer mask added, blend mode changed from Normal to Hue
* Base layer duplicated and dragged to top of layer stack, hide all layer mask added, blend mode changed from Normal to Saturation
* Airbrushed white on layer masks of top 3 layers to selectively reveal semi-surreal colors

...and we have a Happy Accident!
