Upload number Twenty Nine. Here we have a delightful Border Terrier by the name of Max.

I’ve been inspired by the amazing work of Polly470 and decided to have a play with some textured layers. This is my first attempt so please be gentle with me :-)

Kind regards

    Well, with such an honour behind me what can I say! His face makes me laugh and I love the pop of his face with the textures behind!

  • Thank you Polly, yes I’ve always believed certain Dogs can actually Smile, I think old Max here is positively laughing at the fool on his Hands and Knees, trying to take his Photograph…..

    .. Polly has inspired so many of us… this is terrific, Mark… Max looks very handsome and the background texture is very enhancing and blends well with his coat. Excellent catch light in those eyes and, of course, those pearly whites are a good pop of color .. if you can call white a color.. but you know what I mean! Max looks like somebody might have been tempting him with a cookie.

  • Wow, thank you Kat, oh dear the secret is out about my Doggie Treat Tin…..
