Last night was a surprise. PBS aired a film by Margy Kinmonth entitled The Royal Paintbox. Prince Charles narrated much of it, and while I saw little in the way of his watercolors that impressed me, what was intriguing was his passion for art. There is a long line of artists in his family tree, and the program was more of an overview; nothing in-depth like the Whistler program that preceded it.
What really caught my attention was Queen Elizabeth’s watercolor box. Tubular and full of small compartments, I will watch this program again just to see the Prince open it. I am curious about how it actually works and think I might pay anything to have one like it.
In the meantime, if you are interested in royal art, this program will whet your appetite for more, and the Internet is a good source. Cheery-Bye!
