“Madeline” (2020) Digital paiting, 11” x 13” by Kate Netwal  From the artist: “My work is based in storytelling; people are my favorite subject to focus on. I love to use flat, graphic color and shapes as well as linework to create glimpses into everyday life. This piece is from a project I created in winter of 2020 where I drew ten original characters against flat backdrops. You can find the others on my Instagram: @katenetwalart”
