On my screen the title also looks like "Oils, Watercolors" but in fact the full title is "Turning Portraits into Digital Sketches, Oils, Watercolors" so actually your Digital Sketch is bang on!!
But as you'll quickly discover a good post is always welcome anywhere.

Nice post, too. Good idea to combine the photos.

Legacy Art...

Thank you!
Yes, it was in Photochop CS with the Impressionist plugin. I am consistently more and more impressed with that plugin. It is much more talented than I am.

My first attempt was to combine both pictures.
Karyn:

As Ro said, you're in the right place with this one. Two thumbs up for using both pics.

Thanks for taking that leap of faith.

Pretty much a few layers of Impressionist rendered effects + Photoshop Dry Brush blended together using layer masks and layer blending options.

See snapshot of the Layers Palette for the detailed layer progression. Dry Brush and the Impressionist effects were applied to copies of layer "Base."

If I have time later I might see what this one looks like with a few brush strokes in Corel Painter.

Thanks again, Legacy, for the darling pics.

Second Try

Hi Karyn and welcome, keep up the good work!

Very nice result Danny, I must set up Impressionist again soon.

I went back to the drawing board in Painter with this which I'm still fumbling around in and experimenting. There's so much to learn!

Goauche, then Digital Water Colour, Soft Cloner, some GB. Opened in PSP8 to finish off adding a slight WC layer reduced opacity.
