    Hills entered the R.A. Schools in 1788 and exhibited at the Royal Academy in 1791. He came to prominence in 1804 as one of the six artists who founded the Old Watercolour Society and he exhibited almost six hundred drawings there during his lifetime. He was he Society?s first Secretary and later served as Treasurer. He specialised in studies of animals and farmyards and his work is distinctive for its `fuzzy? technique.
