Prince Charles, also known as the Prince of Wales, has a variety of interests outside of his royal duties, including an interest in watercolor painting. These paintings focus on landscape scenes from places the prince has visited on personal and official vacations.
A good number of these paintings are available for public view on official royal websites, including Prince Charles' own private website. Locations depicted in these paintings include Scotland, Greece, Africa, Switzerland and Italy. In addition to landscapes, the prince has also made abstract and non-objective works. Prince Charles' interest in painting as a hobby can be traced back to the 1970s.
