Like most people, I was riveted to the Rio Olympics. The last week was pretty rainy in Austin, and reception was sometimes poor. As the TV stream got bitmapped, I got very interested in the altered images. I decided to take a few reference shots. I don't know who this newscaster is, but he looked very retro/Mad Men to me. Perfect for an abstract portrait! This one was very fun to paint alla prima in one sitting.
