Ashdown Arts rose to the challenge of exhibiting in a Covid-19 environment. This annual event, held at the Scout Headquarters in Forest Row took advantage of its location to put on a safe, socially-distanced exhibition. The Headquarters is situated on the Forest Way Country Park and long distance cycle route 21. The weather proved a problem for working outside in the earlier part of the week, but the bank holiday weather was perfect for attracting visitors. I sold seven small artworks which were replaced with the same number of works in progress resulting from demonstration activities. I particularly enjoyed trying the Sennelier paint tips with their abstract acrylic paint, producing interesting 3D effects, similar to icing sugar patterns.
