The Wainwrights in Colour by Andy Beck

The Wainwrights in Colour by Andy Beck

A keen hill-walker the fells of the Lake district is one of Andy’s favourite places and being so close to hand he is able to visit the area even on short day trips.

These trips have been used to gather the required photographs for the project as well as ideas for other Lake District paintings.

Due to the number of illustrations, more than one route on each of the 214 fells has to be undertaken and of course the weather conditions have to be favourable to allow the scene that A.W. depicted in his sketches to be viewed by Andy.

The process of this project has been on going for the past ten years and a 17 minute DVD on how Andy completed just one of the fells in this major undertaking is included with the book.

“It has never been my intention for the project to be seen as copying the work of A.W., an impossible task, more as a matter of interest as how his sketches compare to today’s scenes. Standing on the exact spot where he stood every time is not only a sense of achievement to me but also a feeling of closeness to the man and his work.”

The Wainwrights in Colour is an incredible book and fully reflects the passion, effort, enthusiasm and talent that Andy has put into creating a new Lakeland classic. I cannot recommend it highly enough. It is the closest anyone has come to matching the scope and depth of AW's pictorial guides and the perfect contemporary companion to the originals.This is a 'Must Have' for any and all Wainwright fans.

This has pride of place on our coffee table, in our conservatory where I can look at it easily and show my friends. This truly is a most beautiful publication, a must have for any lover of Wainwright and The Lakes, so proud and so happy for Andy, congratulations, this is a work of art and has been worth the wait, thank you!
