He enjoyed great success as a painter of English and French landscapes. He trained briefly under his brother, Arthur Parton prior to leaving the US. Ernest Parton took with him a tradition of painting the landscape that was rooted in the Hudson River School where he began painting and where he trained as a young man.

He flew for the Royal Naval Air Service during WWI and spent time in Europe and the UK during this time.
