William Frederick Mitchell (Calshot Castle, Hampshire 1845–1914, Ryde, Isle of Wight)
was a British artist commissioned to paint many naval and merchant ships. Mitchell's collected works were originally published in The Royal Navy in a series of illustrations. Many are in the National Maritime Museum Collection in Greenwich, England. Lived in Hampshire and initially woorked as an amatuer in Portsmouth before acquiring an agent, Griffith, after which he worked continuously on commissions from naval officers and merchant ships for their officers and owners.

For many yeras he illustrated Brassey's Naval Annual. He numbered all his works which amounted to more than 3500. His medium was principally watercolour, quite often in postcard format, but aslo painted in oil. Mitchell wrote a short autobiography for the 1904 May - June issue of The Messenger, a magazine for deaf people, in which he describes how scarlet fever deprived him of his hearing and how his father, who was a coastguard in H.M. Customs and Revenue stationed at Calshot Castle, taught him to speak.

His autobiography details his move to Ryde on the Isle of Wight, shortly after marriage in 1881 to Miss Woodman. It is alledged the his patrons included Queen Victoria, Edward, Prince of Wales, Grand Duke Michael Mikhailovich of Russia, a keen tennis player and the German Emperor.
