cancelled shows Andy beck

Andy and Esther have decided to significantly reduce their participation in the 2024 show season, attending only about 5 out of the originally planned 40 days. This decision, prompted by commercial reasons and not enough new artwork from Andy, aims to refocus on producing quality paintings and expanding brand awareness through other projects, like new content for Andy’s YouTube channel and books. They plan a strong return in 2025 with new artwork and request support from their followers to maintain brand visibility online during this period.

This endeavour provided both challenging and memorable elements, encapsulating the timeless beauty of these fells.

Starting from Brumston Bridge, he documented his journey using a Samsung WB500 camera. This easy route can also be divided into separate walks for each fell, making it suitable for families. Andy’s path included scenic views and notable landmarks such as Dodd Crag and old grouse butts, ultimately returning to the starting point.
