Wow! I see a lot of good renditions here. Here's my try.

Method:
1. Increase color (mostly saturation)
2. Remove surface detail (mostly smart blur).
3. Add edge, increase contrast, and add chromo surface texture (mostly done with extremely high levels of very focused sharpening).
4. Rearrange hair to conform more to gravity (liquify, cut-paste-blend, clone, and smudge.
5. Reduce/remove jags and distractions (blur, clone, heal)

Hey, Andrew:

Nice to see your post. This is an OUTSTANDING interpretation. I especially like how you did the hair.

Well done.

Thanks, Danny.

I just realized I forgot to mention one step. Before I started the rendering, I changed her facial expression to make it a little less stern. I used FaceFilter Studio for that.

See http://www.facefilter.com/

Here's a happy accident. I was supposed to be bringing out the brush strokes, but got detoured into "What if..." mode.

Duplicate layer;
Emboss and apply auto levels;
Duplicate the original layer and put on top of this, mode color;
Hue/Sat layer, with Sat at +40
and there you go - a painted bas-relief.
