The Frank J. Reilly Papers
Matthew Innis on his blog underpaintings is reporting that Pennsylvanian portraitist John Ennis has recently been made custodian of nine boxes that contain the hand-written teaching notes of Frank J. Reilly, one of the most influential American art teachers of the twentieth century. He is starting a blog called The Reilly Papers and will be posting all of the information from the collection.
He is concerned no one is interested in this information so show some support and follow the blog.

Amazing find. This should be sticky.
November 22nd, 2010 #8Ennis is earnest in his desire to electronically share these documents with artists worldwide, but he knows the web log will be a time-consuming endeavor. He is afraid that his effort is selfish, and that these notes are of interest only to himself. If this is a project you would like to see him continue, then please visit The Reilly Papers, and show John Ennis your support.

For some reason it's really difficult to find the abstraction method online. It's such an important method to learn. It really makes drawing easy. The only issue that I have with it is it doesn't help with facial expressions.
