This is another combination of various Impressionist effects applied to copies of the Background:
* Charcoal: Default
* Conte: Unsmudged Monochrome (Color=Image)
* Chalk: Bright Strokes on Black (Background=Image)
...blended using layer masks.

Facial detail was restored by duplicating the Background twice, dragging both layers to the top of the layer stack, adding Hide All layer masks to them. To the next to the top layer, Photoshop's Dry Brush filter was applied.

The detail was restored by painting white with a chalk brush on the layer masks of the top two layers.

After the final result looked okay to me, I added another layer to the top of the layer stack, merged all visible layers (alt + ctrl + shift + E) and applied some Unsharp Mask to this top layer to give some personality to the edges.

Great picture! Love the freckles. I really like the texture in your image Danny. Lovely rendition. I tried another oil look:

I wasn't sure if were limited to what we can do to this image. So forgive me if I haven't followed the rules.

Anyway here is my result.

Thankyou Danny. I love working with graphics and love a challenge.

Was it okay to create without turning it into a painting of sorts?
