See layers in attachment:
1) Background - some gets through right to the top;
2) BB: Masked to get only the darkest parts, impressionist (mostly chalk I think - got carried away and forgot to write them down ), blending darken;
3) BH: Masked to get only the near dark parts, impressionist (..), blending darken;
4) HB: Masked to get only the near light parts, impressionist (..), blending lighten 60%;
5) HH: Masked to get only the lightest, impressionist (..), blending lighten;
6) Outline: CG Lineart from Stephan Marsh, invert, levelled with max at 127, overlay;
7) Canvas: Mid-gray with PS canvas texture, overlay.

Ok, enough of that, now for the ladies!!

Glad to see the Impressionist fire is lit. I can see this tool has great potential in your capable hands, too.

re: CG Lineart
I did a half-way search at Stephen's site, but wasn't able to track this down. Is it a PS plugin? In which section did you find it.

Sorry, I took the link that is mentioned inside the action, and I didn't check it out.
The full link to the page is :Convolution Corner
and the actions are here: Custom_convolution_actions_APS5.zip
There are about a zillion actions in the download, worth a few minutes sifting through them!!!

Rô.

Dude revisited

Too much fun playing with techniques to pass this one up. I tried Trimoon's watercolor tutorial and added a spin of my own.

A favor, pleasse.

Click Edit button on your post and via Manage attachments button upload a version w/o the texture layer, would ya?

I think I like what I see a lot, but can't tell for sure with the texture.

I'm sooooo sorry. I've been working really hard lately on cleaning out my huge file sizes. After I finished this pic and uploaded the screen shot. I flattened the image and saved it as a tif. The file you requested no longer exists.

I guess I should wait a few hours/days before I downsize. Forgive me.

No problem. Considering all the nice stuff you contribute, you deserve a break once in awhile! ~djr~

I'm having fun with Trimoon's technique as well.

Duplicated the background
New empty layer filled with white.
With Art History brush set at 25 pixel and 35% opacity started painting back detail. Changed brush sizes to get more detail.
Created layer mask on white layer and with soft small white brush painted back about 60% of eyes and mouth.
Hue/Saturation layer, boosted Sat.

Cheers
Dave

Nice job Duv. I see you had the same thing going with a nice slice of white down the bridge of the nose. I finally gave up on that and flattened the image then painted over it some to reduce the shine. I also had some of those little white flecks and decided to add a bit of yellow where most of them were then blend it in with smudge. I always enjoy seeing your results. This one in particular was a good one. Thanks.

Janet
