Sir William Russell Flint, was born in Edinburgh on the fourth of April Eighteen eighty.
His father Francis Wighton Flint, was a watercolourist and designer,
William Russell Flint was fortunate that his family was involved in artistic careers. He studied at Daniel Stewarts School, and then joined the Royal Institution College of Artwork in Edinburgh, this was the environment that led him to work on line and colour which progressed into his own unmistakable watercolour style.
His six year apprenticeship as a draughtsman at a large printing factory in Edinburgh, helped to cultivate the discipline required to become an outstanding artist in his own right. In 1903 Russell Flint began work at the Illustrated London News drawing illustrations.
