During the 2012 presidential primary campaigns, I began taking photos of my HD tv screen of various politicians during  televised debates, which I used to create digital paintings. This was just for personal use and not to be used commercially. I recently came across the folder in my computer that contained some of these digital portraits,and I decided to share this technique. I haven’t worked in this way for several years.
