Andy Beck is the artist well known for his ten-year project on the Lakeland Fells – The Wainwrights in Colour. Over that period, he visited every site that Wainwright used to illustrate his seven Pictorial Guides to the Lakeland Fells and then produced a watercolour sketch for each scene as it appears today, all 1500 of them.

The limited edition book, The Wainwrights in Colour, was published in in 2017 to great acclaim. Not only will Andy be here to sign copies of the book but he is also one of the speakers at the festival – don’t miss his session in the Studio on Sunday at 12pm.
