Played with "David's Watercolour" action, rather liked the effect, thought I'd post it. Cropped a little off the top, but nothing else.
Little Miss Doleful
A quick one...
Resized image to 140%
PR Retouche/PR Brightness
Auto Hue and Sat
Neat Image/Noise Reduction
Neve, Very good!
Here's my try, Danny. Nothing much, just buzz simp1, changed bckgr, dodge and burn tools, render clouds layer.
Warm regards, Judy.

Nice job, P & J, on each yours. Your uncomplicated approaches illustrate once again one does not have to go completely overboard to render very pleasing results.

When I started out on mine I had no real destination/style/outcome in mind. It just came out kind of sketchy/charcoally/chalky.
I started by enlarging the image and knocking out the background.
The point of the attached Layers Palette screenshot is not intended this time as a roadmap, but to illustrate the path to the final outcome. I got to the "Merge Sketch" layer, went out to watch TV, came back and thought, "I don't like this as much as I thought I did."
So then I went off in another direction ("Merge Chalk Sketch", based on "Merge Sketch"), but wasn't completely sold on it, either.
Then I decided to try "a little of both," blending the two interpretations into one which was a satisfactory compromise.
Thanks, Trimoon, for sharing your image with us.
