Prince's Paintings

This delicate watercolour View of Beinn a'Bhuird, Cairngorms (1991) was painted by HRH The Prince of Wales. Anyone who viewed Margy Kinmonth's film Royal Paintbox on ITV last Tuesday will know that Prince Charles is an enthusiastic and talented amateur painter from a line of royal artists (CLICK). Possibly due to the interest aroused by that film, Prince Charles has selected more than 130 of his own watercolours to be published on his website (CLICK). The quality of his artwork is no surprise to me, because a few years ago I was invited to a private showing of an exhibition in which two of his paintings were displayed. All the artists had to stand by their artworks until Prince Charles and his security team arrived. I'm ashamed to say I got drunk, because it was a boiling hot evening and the chilled wine flowed like water.
