Oil Painting Fractals

I was exploring artistic filters in image editing software - you know the kind that make an image look like it was really sketched with an ink pen or painted in watercolours.

The usual software wasn't doing it for me because the effects looked very fake, so I explored further and found the free FotoSketcher. Its focus is purely on such effects - and it's brilliant. I particularly like the Painitng 5 (watercolour) and Painting 6  (oil) effects - they are very realistic.

Then it struck me - what if I applied these filters to fractal images? The results, in my opinion, are fantastic! Enjoy .... and do try it yourself!
