prince charles watercolor paintings

http://www.amazon.com/H-R-Prince-Wal.../dp/0821218816

it shows a few of his paintings for his book at this website for amazon.com. i also saw 3 other ones that were auctioned off, but they were really boring. the one of the castle is really good. watercolors are hard to work with, so i wouldn't expect too much from them. i did a really pretty one of a mountain with green grass below it, with a fence and some daisies growing in the grass in front of the fence, and it was the closest i could get to reality with watercolor. if you mix it with pen and ink, you can make some beautiful work. it is also popular to do pen and ink with watercolor, so i'll bet he has done some. i would love to buy the book. the price is really good if you buy the used versions.

not affiliated with amazon.com or prince charles, but i just wanted to see what his work looked like. he does some boring pictures, but he's not that bad at all and can do what ever he's painting justice.

I saw a book of Prince Charles' water colors for sale in a secondhand store... and I thought they were quite attractive. This book included some of Balmoral and Windsor, so they were rather moody, with lots of grays (for the rocks and the castles) and clouds.

I had thought I might like to take the book apart and frame some of them. (And I wouldn't hang an ugly painting, even if it were painted by a Royal.)

prince charles paintings

it would be a great idea to frame or to put in a photo ablum depending on their size. if you scrapbook you can paste them on a piece of construction paper and poke holes to put on a ring binder to keep them. the will still be displayed nicely. i wonder why he doesn't do oil painting? if he can do that in watercolor, he can do it ten times better in oil. i hate acrylics because i'm too slow and the paint dries before i can get done. he could at least try those too. i would love to see an oil painting from him and a portrait too.

I have the collection of his Watercolours (book by the Prince of Wales) and I think they are really pretty good. My opinion has nothing to do mith my general (very high) opinion of the Prince of Wales. The watercolours are really good. The book includes about 70 of his paintings and I trully enjoy most (if not all) of them.

Is this Charles' first trip back to Nigeria since early 1990's, or has he been there in between?

I like Charles' watercolors. I think his work is rather good. I bought on ebay a limited edition print of his South of France work. My dream is to get a companion piece of Camilla's work. :)

It was Charles´ third visit to Nigeria. He visited the African country before in March 1990 and in May 1999.

I know some very nice watercolor works, Charles painted in Scotland. I like very much his pictures from the Highlands there. You can see his love for this countryside in his paintings.
I have seen only one picture painted by Camilla, it shows a rhinoceros in the african steppe, and she donated it for a charity.
Have you seen more watercolor works of her?

I want that Rhino. The rhino was bought by a journalist, Piers Morgan. He has it in his bathroom.

But in answer to your question I have seen one other painting. On ebay, somebody I think it was like last year was trying to sell an oil painting she did for $10,000 US. It didn't sell. It was a picture of a dead bird on plate with a table and lamp. Ignoring the subject, I thought she was pretty good. Charles, I think is better but Camilla herself says it is just a hobby. I think it was an older painting since I don't think she has used oils in awhile like years. Personally I think the oil was done like in an art class or something. But I base that on the subject matter.
