King Charles III paints

King Charles III of the United Kingdom has a hobby that few people know about: painting. In his younger years, he often went outdoors and painted architecture and mountains. Moreover, even on one of his trips to Japan, Charles III took an easel and paints with him to recreate the beauty of nature on paper. Because of his talent for painting and the significant amounts of money he earned from selling paintings, the king was nicknamed one of the most successful artists in Britain.

The monarch is a master of watercolor, and his works cannot be found in other techniques and with other colors. Since his early childhood, His Majesty has been interested in painting and even reproduced his parents on canvas: Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip. Hello! writes that these two paintings were sold at auction for 46 thousand pounds (2.37 million hryvnias).
