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.

Awesome info!

I too am a decendent of the Reilly Method, through a student of Fred Fixler. Watts Atelier (www.wattsatelier.com) keeps this tradition alive, as does California Art Institute (www.calartinst.com) and LA Academy of Figurative Art (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.
