Thornton was influenced by the French Impressionists, but chose to paint his favoured landscapes in a quiet, naturalistic and very simplistic style. Nonetheless, he was very adept at reproducing the quality of trees and his subtle appreciation of tone values imbued his paintings with atmosphere and character. A highly cultured and intellectual man, Thornton wrote various articles on the philosophy and psychology of reactions to paintings and, as an artist, is represented in the Tate collection, the British Museum, London, Leeds City Art Gallery and Manchester City Galleries.
Painswick Golf Club was built on Painswick Beacon, the site of one of the several Bronze Age forts in the Cotswolds, in 1891, laid out by David Brown, Open Champion of 1868
