Portrait Society of America Conference 2015: Multi-Figure Portraits and Figurative

On Friday afternoon, the conference attendees split up into breakout sessions. I attended a lecture on multi-figure portraits and paintings with Jennifer Welty and Alexandra Tyng.

Highlights of the talk included slide shows of great paintings, a video with compositional ideas, tips on not making the head too big, dealing with incalcitrant children to get the expression you want, moving heads around on different bodies in photoshop and making sure to photograph all your subjects with the same direction of light.
