Encouraged for his artistic tendencies, he was educated at the Pre-Raphaelite School and painted one of the murals in the Oxford Union with his friends in 1857. In the mid 1860's, he began to paint aesthetic subjects in rustic 18th century dress, such as “Home From Gleaning” and “A Minuet”, both exhibited at the Royal Academy 1875. He was commissioned to paint the “The Delhi Durbar” in the late 1870s, which was exhibited Royal Academy Royal Collection in 1880.
