Russell was based in London, and spent several months of each year travelling the country and doing portraits in oil and pastels. He perfected his technique in pastels to a very high pitch, and in 1772 published 'Elements of Painting with Crayons'. He won premiums from the Society of Arts for Drawings in 1759 and 1760 and entered the RA Schools in 1770. Russell exhibited at the Society of Artists in 1768 and at the Royal Academy between 1769-1806 (abundantly), becoming a full Academician in 1788.
