Illustrating Creative Nonfiction

Glasgow 1897
Watercolour and oil pastel
2018 Charlene Brown

A computer-stylized version of this painting, which was based on old photos of the Tolbooth Steeple in Glasgow Cross, will form the underpainting of a computer collage illustrating the ‘young adult’ or YA novella I have started.  

The novella is a multi-generational journal being written in the ever-evolving genre of creative nonfiction. Chapter 1 (a draft of which is the only part I’ve actually written) begins in Glasgow, just before the electrification of the tram system.
