  • Sketching Technique When sketching, hold the pencil with a grip firm enough to control the strokes. Your arm and hand should have a free and easy movement. As you sketch, rotate the pencil slightly between the strokes to retain the point longer. Initial lines should be sharp and light.
  • Slide 5
  • Sketching Technique Apply light pressure to avoid making grooves in the paper. Keep your eye on the point where the line will end; use a series of short strokes to reach that point. When all the lines are sketched, go back and darken the lines. Strive for neatness and good technique.
