I've done a number of pictures like this in the past for family and friends and this little charmer was an ideal candidate! Basically use a good quality blue sky and cloudy background photo. Extracted the boy and placed as new layer on bg. Extracted some clouds and manipulated into shape in front of the boy on another layer. Added a wing on a new layer, then duplicated it and added a slight shadow. Added a decorative wall on another layer. Merged.

Finally added Impressionist/Fluffbutt's Stevie's Gouache setting. It didn't work well for me the first two goes because it made the clouds too white, so I added a multilply layer reduced opacity to compensate and then applied the filter.

Had a lot of fun with this one.

Help from eScrapper's Pencil Sketch technique.

Can find the technique here. Also mixed in (on a duplicate layer of course) Impressionist.

Thanks Al.

Repeat it again; Impressionist is just too much.
