In the late 1870s Russell retired from medicine and moved from the intense industrial frenzy of South Wales to the calm of genteel Caledonian Place, Clifton. He now had more time to devote to his interest in botany and it was in Clifton that he executed these beautifully studied botanical watercolours which date to the early 1880s. Looking upon his subject with the eyes of a botanist, the accuracy of a surgeon and the hand of an artist he recorded the flowers he would have seen around him and included native species as well as the more exotic plants that were becoming fashionable and then being grown by the Victorian gardener.
Russell died in Clifton in 1915 at the great age of 94.
