Elizabeth Perry

Elizabeth Perry, from the lecture on primary research, really grabbed my attention. I was impressed how she seemed to make inanimate, everyday objects interesting simply by positioning them carefully in her sketchbook and thinking about the materials she used. I especially liked some of the silhouettes she did called 'Walking Home', and they gave me an idea of how to subtly include shoes in an image, hanging from an electricity wire, like I've seen thousands of times. I also liked Perry's use of line, which is considered and careful, and tried to apply this approach to some of my drawings.
