Sketch \Sketch\, n. [D. schets, fr. It. schizzo a sketch, a splash (whence also F. esquisse; cf. Esquisse.); cf. It. schizzare to splash, to sketch.] An outline or general delineation of anything; a first rough or incomplete draught or plan of any design; especially, in the fine arts, such a representation of an object or scene as serves the artist's purpose by recording its chief features; also, a preliminary study for an original work.
Syn: Outline; delineation; draught; plan; design.
Usage: Sketch, Outline, Delineation. An outline gives
only the bounding lines of some scene or picture. A
sketch fills up the outline in part, giving broad
touches, by which an imperfect idea may be conveyed. A
delineation goes further, carrying out the more
striking features of the picture, and going so much
into detail as to furnish a clear conception of the
whole. Figuratively, we may speak of the outlines of a
plan, of a work, of a project, etc., which serve as a
basis on which the subordinate parts are formed, or of
sketches of countries, characters, manners, etc.,
which give us a general idea of the things described.
Sketch \Sketch\, v. t. [imp. & p. p. Sketched; p. pr. & vb. n. Sketching.] [Cf D. schetsen, It. schizzare. See Sketch, n.]
To draw the outline or chief features of; to make a rought of.
To plan or describe by giving the principal points or ideas of.
Syn: To delineate; design; draught; depict.
Sketch \Sketch\, v. i. To make sketches, as of landscapes.
Douglas Harper's Etymology Dictionary
"rough drawing intended to serve as the basis for a finished picture," 1660s, from Dutch schets or Low German skizze, both apparently 17c. artists' borrowings from Italian schizzo "sketch, drawing," which is commonly said to be from Latin *schedius (OED compares schedia "raft," schedium "an extemporaneous poem"), from or related to Greek skhedios "temporary, extemporaneous, done or made off-hand," related to skhema "form, shape, appearance" (see scheme (n.)). But according to Barnhart Italian schizzo is a special use of schizzo "a splash, squirt," from schizzare "to splash or squirt," of uncertain origin.\n
\nExtended sense of "brief account" is from 1660s; meaning "short play or performance, usually comic" is from 1789. Sketch-book recorded from 1820. German Skizze, French esquisse, Spanish esquicio are likewise from Italian schizzo. \n
1690s, "present the essential facts of," from sketch (n.). Meaning "draw, portray in outline and partial shading" is from 1725. Related: Sketched; sketcher; sketching.

Sketch may refer to:
A sketch (ultimately from Greek σχέδιος – schedios, "done extempore") is a rapidly executed freehand drawing that is not usually intended as a finished work. A sketch may serve a number of 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.
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. But it may also apply to drawings executed in pen and ink, ballpoint pen, water colour and oil paint. The latter two are generally referred to as "water colour sketches" and " oil sketches". A sculptor might model three-dimensional sketches in clay, plasticine or wax.
