Difference Between Drawing and Sketching
Drawing and sketching are often confused as the same thing - in fact, sketching is a form of drawing. However, sketching is typically the lighter, looser style of drawing you do to lay down the groundwork for your later drawing. Sketches usually lack details and are quick.
Charcoals and graphite pencils are the main mediums used for sketching, while pastels and coloured pencils can also be used in drawing to add depth and contrast.
