From the INTRODUCTION. The art of making a sketch is, in fact, the art of recording by a few strokes of the pencil or touches of the pen the remembrance of a thing we have seen, or the impression of a scene we have imagined. A sketch bears the same relation to a finished drawing as shorthand notes bear to a revised report. I here speak, of course, of the note-sketch rapidly set down; for the word -sketch- is also applied to studies from Nature often a good deal elaborated. I will try to divide into classes the various modes of sketching, and more especially to indicate some practical methods of executing and of making use of a sketch; for individual artistic temperament and character have greater influence than might be supposed, both on the treatment and the result. Some persons aim chiefly at rapid draughtsmanship; others give more time to the matter. Some attend chiefly to detail, others only look at the mass; and such sketches, though drawn and rendered in different ways, may be equally good, each in its own line. In the same way-and this, too, is a matter of natural temperament-a subject, a motive, which charms one man will leave another absolutely unmoved. In any case, whether the draughtsman be quick or slow, emotional or apathetic, there is nothing so interesting or so refreshing as sketching from Nature. The more you sketch the more you will long to sketch; so much so, that if once you make a beginning, it will become a necessity, almost a mania - as innocent a mania as fly-fishing, and certainly quite as absorbing, and far less unpleasant, so far as the gudgeon and the bleak are concerned.
