Personal Notes

I studied three different Reilly Methods which I got from the internet. I am now busy combining them together to get a more accurate sketch. There will be a lot of lines, and I am not sure if it is a good thing. I think as soon as the sketch is completed I will get the idea if it is working.

Personal Notes

This method is a new method that I got from youtube. It was a very long video clip of 28 minutes. I am not very happy with this method, the reason why it starts from the top, and then ends with the final drawing of the outer part of the face. The previous method I used is you first get the outline of the face in shape and then you draw inwards. This one you draw from top to bottom. I am going to sit on this method for a while and going to practice it again. I learned a lot and a few new things.

What nice was about this tutorial he worked on photoshop with a real photo at the background. You can then exactly see who he apply the Reilly method on the face. That was very helpful.

Personal Notes

I draw these images on the Reilly Method, and then I made it a bit impressionistic. I feel both are working, I get the idea of how to draw the faces with the Reilly Method.

My Personal Notes

What do I think about my sketch? It is not placed in the middle just a little bit to the left. That is my mistake when I start to draw the circle of the face. The eyes are working, it is now correct, the nose works a bit, the mouth needs more work. I think the ears are working, I used an impressionistic style to do this work, with lines. First I started with a 2B Pencil Wood, then 3B Pencil Wood, and finally 4B Pencil wood.

Also, I used the Reilly Drawing Method to do this sketch and I must say it works for me better than the Looming Drawing Method.

What is Rhythm in Art

It means the arrangement of shapes in a way that creates an underlying platform/beat. It is almost the same as music but does not have a sound you use shapes and colors instead. It is usually achieved through repetition of lines, shapes, colors, and more. It also creates a path for the viewer to follow.

You get types of Rhythm

Alternating Rhythm

That is when two or more components are used interchangeably. Some of them are alternating light and dark colors or repeating shapes and colors.

Andy Warhol, Untitled from Marilyn Monroe, 1967

Random Rhythm

It is a rhythm that contains repeating elements but not in a specified order or arrangement.

Chuck Close, Self Portrait, 2007

Flowing Rhythm

It contains curved or circular elements that give movement to the art.
Some samples of them are flowers, clouds, or waves.

Vincent van Gogh, The Starry Night, 1889

Regular Rhythm

This is an artwork with repeating elements in a specified order or arrangement. That can be evenly spaced windows or tiles.

Andy Warhol, Twenty-Five Colored Marilyns

Progressive Rhythm

It is an artwork that contains repeating elements in patterns that change either in size or color as they repeat.

Jasper Johns, Three Flags, 1958

My Personal Notes

I draw this image from out my head, I worked with the Reilly Method to draw this image. I started with the eyes and you will see the eyes are to close to each other. Then the nose, then the ears and then the mouth, and then the hair.

I took my pencil and try to make in expressionistic, it looks a little messy but I think I start getting the feeling of how expressionism works.
