Prince Charles ‘shocked’ by own paintings as he launches new London exhibition | Royal | News

Prince Charles, 73, is certainly known as a member of the royal family who is in touch with his artistic side. However, Charles has recently admitted that he was somewhat disappointed with some of his sketches.

The Prince of Wales showed his dismay at his work when he first picked up the brushes in an exhibition set to be held in London until February 14.

They will be displayed in the Prince’s Foundation exhibition space in the second-degree listed Garrison Chapel.

However, the Telegraph reports that the Duke of Cornwall painted about 680 pieces during his lifetime.

Speaking to the paneled exhibition, Charles wrote: “When I look back now at those first sketches I made, I am shocked at how bad they are.

“However, the great thing about painting is that you give your own individual interpretation of whatever vision you have chosen.”

He added: “I’m not under the illusion that my sketches represent great art or budding talent.

“They represent, more than anything else, my particular form of ‘photo album’ and as such they mean a lot to me.”

However, Charles also explained in the display cases how he had tried to take up a hobby that has since been taken up by other members of the Firm.

The gallery is open seven days a week from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.

However, it is closed on January 25th and then again between January 31st and February 4th.

After that, it will remain open to the public until February 14.

Admission to the exhibition is free and visitors do not need to book tickets in advance.
