In 1828 Creswick went to London, where he immediately began to exhibit at the British Institution and also at the Royal Academy.
His early works were mainly Welsh scenes, such as “A Trout Stream in Wales” which he painted in 1833. He was elected an associate of the Royal Academy in 1842 and became a full Academician in 1851.
Creswick’s paintings are typical of the type of work popularised by the Royal Academy at the time, in that they are well executed, with much attention to the brushwork, but using a subdued palette, full of the various shades of dark green.
Creswick was a prolific painter who produced a steady stream of work; as well as numerous illustrations for books.
His works can be found in the British Museum, also in Glasgow, Manchester and Whitby.
