Andy Beck: The Wainwrights in Colour

Andy Beck: The Wainwrights in Colour


Inspired by the work of Master Fell walker and artist Alfred Wainwright, Andy has just completed the major project of producing a watercolour sketch of every illustration drawn by Wainwright in his seven Pictorial Guides to the Lakeland Fells.  Every single location of the illustrations has been meticulously researched so that Andy’s references are taken from the exact location where Wainwright stood to take his own black and white photographs. 

The process of this project took over ten years to complete.  Its uniqueness has meant that it has been featured in the media both locally and nationally.  The Wainwrights in Colour Book [] was published in May 2017 as a limited edition of only 5000 signed and numbered copies.  The book has since won “Outdoor Book of the Year 2017” in the TGO Readers Awards as well as the BBC Countryfile Magazine Book of the Year.  Come along to see and hear as Andy talks about his experience of completing this amazing project.
