Donelli J. DiMaria is a professional artist and teacher living in Santa Fe, NM. He has shown his paintings and drawings through out the US for the past twenty years in numerous galleries and juried/invited arts shows. Over the past four years, he has been in 14 group museum shows and has his work published in the "Artist's Magazine", "American Art Collector", and in "The Best of Portrait Painting" (North Light Books). He has been actively teaching the "Reilly" drawing and painting techniques for the past four years, and he and his wife wrote a book on this drawing technique in 2010. Examples of his paintings and drawings can be seen on his website at http://donelli-dimaria.artistwebsites.com and www.youtube.com/DJDiMaria. Recently, Donelli and his wife Diane have published a drawing manual on the "Reilly" technique on "Lulu" at www.lulu.com/spotlight/DJDiMaria which is available in paperback or as an ebook.
This Frank Reilly method drawing course in fifteen lectures covers the details of the "Reilly" drawing technique and demonstrations using it. This technique allows for complete figure drawings from life in less than 45 minutes. Starting with the lines of action and large abstract shapes, the course proceeds through small shapes, negative space, value, perspective, foreshortening, edge, line, details (face, hands and feet), and drapery on the figure. The final two lectures summarize the entire technique and give two examples using it to draw complete figures in under five minutes by Reilly Method Drawing.

Regardless whether a course is free or paid, I believe that students invest their time in learning these courses. If Udemy values its reputation as a bonafide MOOC provider, it should screen the courses so that reliable quality courses are provided
Good information, but having trouble getting through it due to the shaky camera work. It just needs a little more spit and polish.
This is a life drawing course that uses nude models. Donelli DiMaria is putting himself out there, and it's pretty mesmerizing. Watching him work is a good study into the temperament of an artist, and how he goes about his work.
