Sketching is a type of drawing that is done completely freehand. It is often a technique used to create initial representations of final drawings or designs. In some cases, however, artists will create final pieces, just by sketching – as seen with Ismail Mat Hussin. Here the audience gets a glimpse into the legendary artist’s first outlines before creating a masterpiece. Often, a sketch can tell so much about an artist’s vision and it is a privilege to be able to own one of the rawest pieces by Ismail Mat Hussin.
