A full-length portrait turned fully to the right, with the head looking back towards the viewer over the right shoulder. Russell wears a breastplate over a rust-coloured coat and a full-bottomed brown wig. He has buckled shoes and his left hand rests on a stone plinth beside a drape of richly decorated gold material which has either a telescope or commander's baton partly visible on top. He points with his right hand, inviting the viewer's gaze towards the naval action in the distance to the right.
