sketch,

a rapidly executed kind of pictorial note-taking. The sketch is not usually intended as an autonomous work of art, although many have been considered masterpieces in their own right. Used extensively in the planning of large, complex projects, the sketch allows the artist to visualize quickly the bend of a knee or the sweep of an arm without having to experiment directly on the work itself.

Sketch

 

a preliminary drawing that sets forth the main idea of an entire work of art or an individual part, including the composition, spatial planes, and color scheme of the future work. Sketches may be drawn for works of graphic art, paintings, or sculptures. They are usually distinguished by a free, fluent style but may be quite detailed.

Sketches by major artists possess artistic value and may be considered complete works in themselves.
