Note: "Until I tried to paint Sandringham I thought Balmoral was difficult enough...But Sandringham is in a league of its own, as I discovered the moment I started to draw the house. It is a veritable minefield of gables, bow windows, parapets, balustrades, to w ers, cupolas and gigantic chimneys. Trying to get the perspective right was an intriguing challenge in itself...I made life more difficult for myself by selecting a pretty impossible angle from which to do the painting, but I thought it would be more interesting than most others" HRH The Prince of Wales Extract from HRH The Prince of Wales Watercolours, Little, Brown and Company, 1991.
