Illustration Friday: Dip


I haven't done anything for Illustration Friday for quite some time, so I decided today I would take the time to do a quick sketch. This is 5x7", done in oil on canvas. It is of our last lab, Wooster, retrieving a stick by taking a dip in the lake at our cabin. Good times!
