Posterizing images to give them a certain "painting-like" look

One of the things that is nice about Picasa is how easy it is to apply popular effects to images. I've been playing around with the posterize features, and for some images, with the right settings, it seems to give a certain "painting-like" feel or a cartoonish look. Of course picasa doesn't do a great job of it, but you can end up with stuff like this:

Both of the above images only use a few colors. The technique seems to work better on some images than others. Does anyone know of any good tools or GIMP plugins for this sort of thing? It'd be neat to see what could be done with more than just picasa to work with. I might try to use some GIMP-based tools soon and compare what can be done.
