The Wainwrights

Andy Beck gives a  personal and emotional insight into the trials and tribulations of his ten-year project to paint every single one of the 1500 views depicted by Alfred Wainwright in his Pictorial Guides to the Lakeland Fells. Andy will talk about his self-published book, The Wainwrights in Colour which was voted The Great Outdoors Magazine‘s  Outdoor Book of the Year 2017 and was also the BBC Countryfile  Magazine’s  Book of the Year 2018.

Andy Beck is a self-taught professional artist based in Teesdale in County Durham. He draws inspiration for his work from the landscape and wildlife which he observes on his travels and walks, mostly in Northern England and Scotland.
