Rebecca! This is THE drawing method I learned and have practiced all my drawing life. I was taught by guys that trained under Fred Fixler who studied under Frank Reilly. All the gesture shapes and graphic lay-ins are on that page you found. Wow. I picked up some points I hadn't been aware of such as the station and connector points. And reading his history is interesting as I realize his close assocation with D. Cornwell (another top favorite illustrator I study). Really glad you posted this.

I too am a decendent of the Reilly Method, through a student of Fred Fixler. Watts Atelier (www.wattsatelier.com (http://www.wattsatelier.com)) keeps this tradition alive, as does California Art Institute (www.calartinst.com (http://www.calartinst.com)) and LA Academy of Figurative Art (www.laafigart.com (http://www.laafigart.com)). It seems like ateliers are popping up everywhere these days teaching the Reilly Method and the Bargue sight-size method. It's really exciting to see a resurgence of classical figurative art; it sure seems that it's been out of favor in recent years.
