Artist Biography

Ashcroft used his time at Art College to master the techniques of drawing and watercolour. Even at this early stage, he envisaged a very personal form of art, which he was aware could only be achieved by endless trial and experiment. Whilst he certainly did not shun outside influence, Ashcroft wanted his vision and his direction to be totally his own.
By the late seventies, he started exhibiting in group shows such as the Festival Exhibitions in the West Country and the Royal West of England Academy. As his reputation grew he received invitations to take part in shows as far afield as Cardiff, Guernsey, the Dordogne, London (Royal Academy 1987) and the USA.

When talking about his work, Ashcroft stated "I now paint exclusively in watercolour, which seems to me the most sympathetic medium for my methods of working. I paint slowly, building up washes to quite a high degree of density and detail, and generally work on a fairly small scale, though in recent years I have spent my summers in the Dordogne region of France and have also travelled to Greece, Italy and Spain. These visits have naturally influenced my choice of subject matter, although I find myself increasingly drawn towards still-life."
