Lindsay was born at Alnwick, Northumberland on 26th December 1792. He trained as a landscape painter in watercolour and exhibited at the New Watercolour Society from 1833, living in London and then Greenwich. In 1848 he moved to Cusop near Hay-on-Wye where he lived at Dulas Cottage. This on-the-spot sketch, inscribed with colour notes, is a view taken from his local church.

Examples of his work are in the British Museum, Victoria and Albert Museum and the National Library, Wales.
