To try and deconstruct how this was done, it's always help to start with the same source image and try to recreare it. Google's reverse image search is handy for that – JohnB May 23 '14 at 9:00

Select the filter Menu -> Oil paint…, and use the following settings as shown in the image below to get this effect. Adjust your own settings according to your picture.
