Personal Notes

My first drawing was just the layout of how the face must be. You will see that I used the Reilly method to do that. I got a better understanding of the size of the face and where the nose and ears and eyes have to be.

The sketch is working for me but it is not there yet. I am very happy with my work and I see a lot of progress on it. I started to enjoy it now and I feel I just need the secret word and that is PRACTICE!!

Personal Notes

The first thing I focus on was the circle of the face. I try to see how the circle must be, it was not round, it was a bit oval.

There are a few things, that I am not happy about and that is the mouth is too high. I still struggle with the ears and the eyes but I think luckily with practice I will be able to draw the faces as it should be.

One thing is for sure and that is that I understand the Reilly method. I am very happy that I spend so much time studying it.

Personal Notes

I am still busy with the Reilly method and try to figure out how to apply it to a sketch of a person or of a photo of a person. As I understand how the artist really does it, is to memorize it out of the head and you don’t really draw the lines, you just know where the lines must be when you start with the portrait sketch. That is why it is so important for me to redraw it and study it up. Look at different youtube videos to see what the others do. Luckily there is something like practice. The more you practice the better you get. That keeps me positive and keeps me going and to continue to study the Reilly method.

Something about myself is that yesterday I went to the Dentist and he took out a tooth of mine. I must say he did a great job and did not really feel it. I am so glad it is over and I feel tonight much better. My doctors are in Johannesburg so it is an hour’s drive to them. I was really tired when I got home yesterday afternoon and took a nap. It bled till late last night and this morning when I wake up the bleeding stopped. So now it will be about 5 days for the wound to recover.

That was why I did not post anything yesterday. I work hard with the Reilly method and do not put everything I do about my practice with the Reilly technique on the blog because it will get boring.

Personal Notes

I used a photo which I got from the internet and apply the Reilly Method on it. It is not correct but I get the feeling how to apply this technique on photos. This is all part of my practice. I just used normal typing paper to do this sketches.

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.
