The progress on the Wainwrights in Colour continues, painting the few remaining fells takes the highest priority and then spending a few hours in the evenings transferring the re-edited sketches over to the new website. It is now going quite well, once I got to grips with the way to upload images and pages the process has sped up somewhat.
Now I have all of Books 3 (The Central Fells) and Book 4 (The Southern Fells) fully transferred and all the sketches are able to be viewed on the new slideshow format. This method is much better and the reaction has been great from visitors to the website. The fact that the sketches display against the dark background certainly shows them off to their best.
Unlike the old website I have kept things simple and not included too much detail about how the views have changed from the original Pictorial Guides. All of that interesting information will be kept for the book.
So if you haven’t had a look at the new website why not go and take a look, sketches get uploaded almost daily and if you have a favourite fell if it isn’t there already, it will be soon. andybeckartist.co.uk
