Rhythms Of The Head

Reilly rhythms are a kind of shorthand notation for the anatomy of the head. They are very useful as way of remembering the anatomy and proportions, and as a map to head drawing.

Perspective And Other Sketches

March 29, 2020 23:53 BST

I’m having a break from the human figure and doing some perspective and abstract paintings. Mostly this is watercolours; I tend to do mixed media painting in watercolour and pastels, and underdrawing in charcoal or soft graphite pencil, or Sakura fineliners.

Complete Human Figure

There is no such thing as “correct” human proportions and there are many different systems; The statistical average for male and female is also different.

My version is something of a idealized figure. The legs are exactly 1/2 of body height which is the proportion of Leondardo’s Vitruvian Man.

Leg Studies

Luckily, the human leg can’t be pronated and supinated (or not much anyway), so I don’t have to do as many studies. Legs are possibly the most boring part of the human anatomy; Study using Copic markers and fineliner pens.

Arm Study

Arm study, using Copic warm gray and Sakura micron. Doing the prone and supine version for this part of the body. Supine is like holding a bowl of soup.

Torso Study

Continuing my anatomy studies with the muscles of the torso, based on the anatomy books of Gottfried Bammes and S.R.Peck. Musculature has been exaggerated.
