In tonight's episode of Fishlock's Choice - the last in this series - one of Wales’ top artists invites us into his studio.

Meirion Jones describes the beauty of an artist's mistake, saying it can be incredibly satisfying when something doesn't quite go to plan.

I'm a firm believer in the beauty of mistakes. There's nothing more satisfying for a painter than something you've done instinctively as a mistake and then it opens another door - something that you definitely wouldn't have thought about otherwise.

– Meirion Jones
