Abstract:

Lessons from Reilly go for some 54 pages and center on drawing the human figure and for those wanting to break down their work analytically it offers a systematic approach. It also includes some four typical Nine-Value/ Chroma charts (which is value in itself-the single sheets alone sell for much more than the price of the book). These feature red, yellow-red, blue-green and purple-blue (four chroma steps from weakest to the "home level" of each of those hues. Those familiar with Munsell might enjoy these. Also included is a gray value scale, as is the procedure for painting edges, the head, and facial features. An excellent resource. This art book clearly has a methodical approach and it discusses terms in Hue, Value, and Chroma-even attributing value scales in some of the diagrams. Overall this is a pretty neat piece of work and originates from a well studied practice.
