Learn head painting utilizing the Reilly Method in this 10-week online class from Mark Westermoe.

Often, the success or failure of a head painting is determined by the quality and thoughtfulness of its earliest stages. With this in mind, you will be instructed in the basic techniques for head studies from scratch, while you start with the fundamentals and build up.

You will begin with underpaintings and work in monochrome. Then, a limited color palate will be introduced. Once you can construct a good lay in, you will move on to complete paintings.

This Recorded Class Features:

  • 26+ hours of instructional video
  • Reference images to download
  • Access to the student chatroom
  • Online access to this class for 12 months

Mark Westermoe was a renowned artist, illustrator, and instructor. Mark’s class is the closest you can get to learning the Reilly Method from Frank Reilly himself. In this class, Mark will share his knowledge of the Reilly Method and how students can use it to create beautiful head paintings.

In this class, Mark will use oil, acrylic, and gouache as a medium for the demonstrations, sometimes in combination. You will learn that, even with these different types of paint, the same principles apply. The importance of organizing edges, shapes, and values will be stressed, no matter what the medium is.

NOTE: Students will have access to all the class recordings for 12 months and may download all reference images to keep. But since this class is recorded, students will not be able to submit work for critique from the instructor.
