Love the effect. It has a very pleasing painterly feel.
Was this PS, Topaz ?

Very pretty Sandy, whatever you intended- lovely painterly effect. I like the soft background. I do wonder about the eyes-it's right eye has a grey bit in it that puzzles me, and maybe a bit more detail in the eyes altogether would be nice-were there catch-lights?

It will be interesting to see the next version! ;)

I like everything about this lovely portrait apart from the 'dead eyes'. It can be a real pain to maintain life in the eyes when painting photos but it makes such a difference in my opinion. I have had to backtrack several times to get the eyes looking more natural in my own work Sandy.
