    William Collingwood Smith was born to a father who worked for the Admiralty and was a musician and an amateur artist.  Without formal training in art he studied with James Duffield Harding.  At the time, he painted both in oils and watercolours, preferring marine works to landscapes.  This soon changed and he began to paint landscape watercolours almost exclusively.  At the age of  21, Smith was already exhibiting at the Royal Academy.

    In 1843 he became an Associate, and subsequently a Member, of the Society of Painters in Watercolours which later became the Royal Watercolour Society, serving as treasurer for some twenty years.
