After serving a six year apprenticeship as a lithographic artist and designer at a large printing house, he moved to London in 1900 to work as a medical illustrator. In 1903 he began working as an illustrator for the Illustrated London News. In 1905 he married Sibylle Sueter. In 1907 William became a freelance artist, and, in 1912 moved to Italy for a year, where he etched and painted numerous subjects. In 1914, William was made an Associate of the Royal Society of Painters in Water Colours. The onset of the First World War saw him join the Royal Navy Air Force where he became Admiralty Assistant Overseer on Airships, returning to his native Scotland. After the war, William Russell Flint stopped working as an illustrator and became a full time painter, travelling to France and Spain.During this period his work became more widely recognised. In 1924 he was elected Associate of the Royal Academy; in 1933 he became a full member in 1933. In 1936 he was made President of the Royal Society of Painters in Watercolours. After the Second World War, William Russell Flint moved back to London and in 1947 he was knighted. It was this period that would become Flint's greatest and in 1962 his talent was recognised with a retrospective exhibition in the Royal Academy.
