The Prince of Wales has included one of his own paintings of the Cambrian Mountains as he guest-edits a magazine.

Cwm Berwyn, a watercolour by the prince in 2007, is featured in the latest edition of Country Life.

In the magazine, the prince says he loves the area because it is "wonderfully wild and empty; empty except for the hardy, dedicated sheep farmers and their families".

The magazine also features the prince's Llwynywermod home in Carmarthenshire.

Alongside the Cwm Berwyn painting depicting his favourite view, the prince writes in the magazine's 13 November edition: "So many parts of the Welsh rural landscape are an artist's dream.

"Driving through one magical valley after another provides a potential painting at every turn, and Cwm Berwyn is no exception.

"The part of the country in which this view is situated is wonderfully wild and empty; empty except for the hardy, dedicated sheep farmers and their families, whose lives are so inextricably entwined with the scudding, shadowswept beauty of this ancient Cambrian landscape."
