Prince Charles is a keen amateur artist, and writes in his introduction to this collection of his watercolours that "I have tried in these pages to convey something of the part that painting plays in my life. In many ways it helps to keep me reasonably sane, and if it doesn't appeal to the critics, then it's just too bad! I only hope that those who are rash enough to thumb through this book may be helped to discover what infinite beauty and delight there is in the details of God's creation". The Queen Mother contributes the preface.
