Webster's 1913 Dictionary
  1. \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.
  2. \Sketch\, v. t. [imp. & p. p. {Sketched}; p. pr. & vb. n.
    {Sketching}.] [Cf D. schetsen, It. schizzare. See {Sketch},
    1. To draw the outline or chief features of; to make a rought
    2. To plan or describe by giving the principal points or
       ideas of.
    Syn: To delineate; design; draught; depict.
  3. \Sketch\, v. i.
    To make sketches, as of landscapes.
