How to create a sketch?

 

A sketch is a rapidly executed freehand drawing that is not usually intended as a finished work. A sketch may serve several purposes: it might record something that the artist sees, it might record or develop an idea for later use, or it might be used as a quick way of graphically demonstrating an image, idea, or principle. Sketching is the most inexpensive art medium.

 

In this video Tetiana will show you how to sketch your ideas.

 

Sketches can be made in any drawing medium. The term is most often applied to graphic work executed in a dry medium such as silverpoint, graphite, pencil, charcoal, or pastel. It may also apply to drawings executed in pen and ink, digital input such as a digital pen, ballpoint pen, marker pen, watercolor, and oil paint. The latter two are referred to as “watercolor sketches” and “oil sketches”. A sculptor might model three-dimensional sketches in clay, plasticine, or wax.
