Souza's Goan heritage had a profound influence on his oeuvre. In 1959 in his publication of Words and Lines, Souza describes a typical Goan landscape,  'A beautiful country, full of rice fields and palm trees; whitewashed churches with lofty steeples; small houses with imbricated tiles, painted in a variety of colours. Glimpses of the blue sea. Red roads curving over hills and straight across padding fields. Morning is announced by the cock crowing; the approaching night by Angelus bells.'  His landscapes do not contain sentiment, they have an impulsive energetic quality
'The landscapes, architectonic with their 'cubic factors' are ultimately lyrical. There's an unrestrained enthusiasm, a liberty in the application of colour that is swiftly applied with a palette knife, creating smooth pulsating textures.' (Anthony Ludwig, Souza, New Delhi, Dhoomimal Gallery)
