A sketch is a form of free hand drawing that is quickly and is not proposed as a finished work. Sketch can be a pencil sketch or an oil sketch. Pencil Sketch is generally made on the location in a quick manner to give it a finished touch later on.
It is also a way to record an idea to use afterwards. Finishing and final touching requires deep interest and plenty of time, so Artists make sketch to focus on the main elements of the subject.
Graphite pencils, although a relatively new invention, is quite helpful to draw the idea instantly. Different sizes, colors and variants makes Pencil sketches spectacular. Please have a look at some of the best Pencil Sketches.

The concept of language errors is a fuzzy one. I'll leave to linguists
the technical definitions. Here we're concerned only with deviations
from the standard use of English as judged by sophisticated users such
as professional writers, editors, teachers, and literate executives and
personnel officers. The aim of this site is to help you avoid low
grades, lost employment opportunities, lost business, and titters of
amusement at the way you write or speak.
But isn't one person's mistake another's standard usage?
Often enough, but if your standard usage causes other people to consider
you stupid or ignorant, you may want to consider changing it. You have
the right to express yourself in any manner you please, but if you wish
to communicate effectively you should use nonstandard English only when
you intend to, rather than fall into it because you don't know any
I'm learning English as a second language. Will this site help me
improve my English?
Very likely, though it's really aimed at the most common errors of
native speakers. The errors others make in English differ according to
the characteristics of their first languages. Speakers of other
languages tend to make some specific errors that are uncommon among
native speakers, so you may also want to consult sites dealing
specifically with English as a second language (see
http://esl.about.com/education/adulted/esl/). There is also a Help Desk
for ESL students at Washington State University at
http://www.wsu.edu/~gordonl/ESL/. An outstanding book you may want to
order is Ann Raimes' Keys for Writers. This is not a
question-and-answer site for ESL.
Aren't some of these points awfully picky?
This is a relative matter. One person's gaffe is another's peccadillo.
Some common complaints about usage strike me as too persnickety, but I'm
just covering mistakes in English that happen to bother me. Feel free to
create your own page listing your own pet peeves, but I welcome
suggestions for additions to these pages.
What gives you the right to say what an error in English is?
I could take the easy way out and say I'm a professor of English and do
this sort of thing for a living. True, but my Ph.D. is in comparative
literature, not composition or linguistics, and I teach courses in the
history of ideas rather than language as such. But I admire good writing
and try to encourage it in my students.
I found a word you criticized in the dictionary!
You will find certain words or phrases criticized here listed in
dictionaries. Note carefully labels like "dial." (dialectical),
"nonstandard," and "obsolete" before assuming that the dictionary is
endorsing them. The primary job of a dictionary is to track how people
actually use language. Dictionaries differ among themselves on how much
guidance to usage they provide, but the goal of a usage guide like this
is substantially different: to protect you against patterns which are
regarded by substantial numbers of well-educated people as nonstandard.
Why do you discuss mainly American usage?
Because I'm an American, my readers are mostly American, most
English-speaking Web users are Americans, and American English is
quickly becoming an international standard. I often take note of
American deviations from standard British practice. However, the job is
complicated by the fact that Canadians, Australians, and many others
often follow patterns somewhere between the two. If the standard usage
where you are differs from what is described here, tell me about it, and
if I think it's important to do so, I'll note that fact. Meanwhile, just
assume that this site is primarily about American English.
If you write mainly about American English, why do you so often cite the
"Oxford English Dictionary'?
First of all, I do not write exclusively about American English. I
address UK usage in many entries on this site. Second, the OED strives
to cover both UK and US usage, and often notes words or expressions as
having either originated in or being used mainly in the US. It is by no
means an exclusively British dictionary. Third, the OED is the
recognized authority among linguists for etymology. It's not always the
last word in explanations of word origins and history, but it is the
first source to turn to. That's the main purpose for which I use the
OED. Fourth, because the OED tends to be more conservative than some
popular American dictionaries, when it accepts a controversial usage,
that's worth noting. If even the OED regards a usage as accepted in
modern English, then one should hesitate to argue that such usage is an
error. But because the OED is so conservative, and doesn't always note
when a formerly obsolete word is revived or changes in usage, it's not a
perfect guide to contemporary usage. It is particularly weak in noting
changes in spoken rather than written English.
Isn't it oppressive of immigrants and subjugated minorities to insist on
the use of standard English?
Language standards can certainly be used for oppressive purposes, but
most speakers and writers of all races and classes want to use language
in a way that will impress others. The fact is that the world is full of
teachers, employers, and other authorities who may penalize you for your
nonstandard use of the English language. Feel free to denounce these
people if you wish; but if you need their good opinion to get ahead,
you'd be wise to learn standard English. Note that I often suggest
differing usages as appropriate depending on the setting: spoken vs.
written, informal vs. formal; slang is often highly appropriate. In
fact, most of the errors discussed on this site are common in the
writing of privileged middle-class Americans, and some are
characteristic of people with advanced degrees and considerable
intellectual attainments. However you come down on this issue, note that
the great advantage of an open Web-based educational site like this is
that it's voluntary: take what you want and leave the rest. It's
interesting that I have received hundreds of messages from non-native
speakers thanking me for these pages and none from such people
complaining that my pages discriminate against them.
