COURSE DESCRIPTION

This Frank Reilly method drawing course in fifteen lectures covers the details of the "Reilly" drawing technique and demonstrations using it.

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.

REVIEWS

  • Josiah Dreiser
    Great course for artists of any level

    Donelli does an excellent job of teaching how to quickly break down the human anatomy, simplifying it and making it easy to grasp for the student. He generously shares his wealth of knowledge on the subject and is prepared with examples for many situations one may encounter in a live drawing class.

  • Robin Dore
    Great Course

    Very Informative :-)

  • Emiliya
    For the money, or rather non - it's perfect!!!

    Tons of good and helpful info!

  • Patty Thomas
    Great Course - I learned a lot!

    This is a really great course. The teacher knows exactly what he is talking about and the format is raw and real. By "raw and real" I mean this was filmed in a live class and "live" things happen there! Concentrate on what is being taught and not how it was filmed and you will learn a lot!

  • Kim Høg
    This course have helped me

    I've alway been a bad drawer (and still is, but it a question about practice). The technique teached in this course have opened my eyes to see how the things can be done. Other courses haven't succeeded with this to me. Thank you.
