Background texture by Jai Johnson blended with original grass in the park setting. For a more painterly look, I prefer to blend the images together with a brush rather than do a hard selection of the subject for a different background...this way I can paint the two into one another, and include some of my original background (which in this case was the grass in the park for this charming fellow who loved to pose for his owner).
