On Friday I went to the ‘drop in’ etching class at the Prince’s Drawing School in Shoreditch. A customer had ordered the full set of my seasonal ‘Tree’ etchings, so I had the pleasure of spending the day printing in the basement of Charlotte Road. I love the drawing school and I’ve been going there on and off since 2008. It’s always really nice to see what other people are working on, the artist Sam Marshall was printing there too, check out her work here.

It’s a real labour of love, especially if you’re a perfectionist like me! I’m pleased to say that I printed one of each season, and thought I’d share some photo’s of the process.

Seasonal Etchings by Sharon Elphick

Spring. Sharon Elphick.

Summer. Sharon Elphick.

Autumn. Sharon Elphick.

Winter. Sharon Elphick.

Four Seasons. Sharon Elphick.

I started working on this plate at The Prince’s Drawing School back in 2008. Recently I decided to work on a set based on the seasons and for some reason squirreled them away. Maybe it was the arrival of Autumn that made me think of them again and put them in the window at Columbia Road. They had such a lovely response last weekend, that I’ve decided to share them here too. They are available to purchase as individual seasons or as a set of four right here.

Autumn has to be one of my favourite seasons and this year the colour outside seems more spectacular than ever. You can add a touch of Autumnal colour indoors with the addition of these two fine screen prints by Marcus Walters. All details available here.
