A couple of years ago, my resources for live art models were less. So I used talking heads during evening news programs for quick portrait sketches.

Have you ever tried anything like this for art practice?

What a challenge! One never knew how long any segment would last. Or any specific view, even of the program’s host.

That time pressure moved me to try for a likeness in a few strokes, which was worthwhile. And a funny game.
