More Sketches from Sicily

As promised a few more sketches from Sicily – click on an image to launch the slideshow:

None of these are through my prowess with pencil or crayon, but courtesy of Sketch Master editing my photographs!!



  1. Nice job editing the photos. The first and last ones are my favorites. Ω

  2. Another excellent Sketch Master series Sue. The one on the bottom right looks so ‘genuine’, I can imagine someone sitting before that view, with a real sketch pad and pencils in hand.
    Best wishes, Pete.

  3. I agree, that last image works particularly well. Nice memories of the last time we were there – 1998 when the World Cup was being played (strange what you remember). Did you go up Etna?

    • Sue

      Isn’t it amazing, some of the things we remember! Glad these brought back memories, Robin. And yes, cable car and 4WD minibus up Etna….

  4. It really is a good app, I’m quite tempted to give it a go.

  5. Suzanne

    These look great. I like the way you have retained some colour in the last one. It adds to the effect,

    • Sue

      It does, I agree… But it is a bit hit and miss as to how much colour remains with an app like this!

      • Suzanne

        Yes the Apps are fun but frustrating. I hope you haven’t been looking for my 5 photos challenge. I started off thinking I could do it then it all got on top of me. I ended up withdrawing the first post because it seemed like the best option. Sorry if I let you down or annoyed you. I should have realised from the start I wouldn’t be able to complete the challenge. Many apologies.

      • Sue

        Oh, don’t worry, Suzanne….it is only meant to be a bit of fun and in no way any pressure. And it’s not fun if you feel an obligation to do something….

      • Suzanne

        It wasn’t so much an obligation as just feeling I was spreading myself too thin. Thanks for understanding.

      • Sue

        Oh, I’ve been feeling I’ve spread myself too thin a lot lately…..

  6. Wow, an amazing app Sue – you’ve done a great job. It’s incredible what can be done with photos these days!

  7. You could certainly pass these off as genuine sketches.

  8. Lovely, Sue! Especially liked Taormina (which I would love to see in reality 🙂 )

    • Sue

      Taormina is distinctly touristy, and I was there on the last day of April…so I guess best around that time, not too far into the summer!

  9. but so effective these apps and filters!! I love your images of Italy!!

  10. This is a really interesting app Sue! I like these very much!
