Hey Art brothers, greetings from Brazil! I’m looking forward to study it more deeply but I couldn’t find any books on this subject matter, any recommendations?

Jack Faragasso has a Reilly book but it is very complicated, I know Dough Higgins also has a few books on it but have not picked it up. I recommend following Watts' teachers on Instagram, such as Erik Gist and Brian Knox they drop tidbits of Reilly Abstraction. You could also audit 1 or 2 streaming classes ($49 to audit, $210 to participate). You can also base your study schedule on the online program without actually taking it, since the online program is in phases, and the preview, it shows what you learn in those phases. Ex. in Head Phase 1 you start off by studying head layins (loomis head), then skull in 3 views, simple Asaro head 3 views, Reilly Abstraction 3 views, finally Asaro Head in 3 views.

Muneem, you rock bro! Faragasso’s book is AMAZING. Now I have a bibliography to rely upon, thank you for your comment. 🙏

Hello, I recently got a book called Figure Drawing For Concept Artists by Kan Muftic and there’s a bit about Reilly rhythms in there. It’s not very in-depth or but thought I’d point it out. It’s a beautiful book. As others have mentioned, Watts Atelier is probably the best place to learn about Reilly rhythms.

Watts is expensive for me right now, I also saw that New Masters Academy teaches it too and I’m looking forward to be a member in the future

Allan! Hello from Argentina! I love books, and I am also looking for a book with the Reilly method. But, the only thing I found is a long article by Ron Lemen in an ImageFX magazine. The title of the entire magazine is "How to draw and paint anatomy." The article by Ron is entitled "Human anatomy, a complete workshop on bringing your body drawing to life." It seems very good, but I did not study it in detail yet.

Hi Demetrio, saludos hermano! Mi madre es de Argentina, I’m currently reading these ImagineFx magazines but unfortunately it doesn’t cover much on Reilly method, just a scratch (but it was helpful though).

Imo just watch the Tim Gula vids on the channel. They should be on youtube but he explains the bibliography very well. Something to keep in mind is how most of the time the road to mastery is the road to the fundamentals. Look at his drawings analyze them and hear what he says. You'll get a strong bibliography. For example one his rhythms seem to follow the main direction of what he fells it's going. Most highlighted by the rhythms of his arms and torsos. There're more but I think it's easy for you to find them. Just remember learning doesn't have to come from books. Study you subjects you want to learn and analyze how it feels.
