  My Welsh inheritance must always remain a strong force in my work, for it is in Wales that I can paint with the greatest freedom.  I have worked in Holland, France and Austria, in Italy and Greece, but in none of these countries have I found the mood that touches the seam of melancholy that is in most Welshmen, a melancholy that derives from the dark hills, the heavy clouds and the enveloping sea mists.
