Art work by Rolling Stones guitarist Ronnie Wood is still showing at Castle Galleries in thecentre:mk

The ‘Drawn to Life’ collection captures his Stones bandmates at work during last year’s 14 On Fire global tour.

Before Ronnie began his career as a pro musician back in the ‘60s he received formal training at Ealing College of Art.

The accomplished artist was also responsible for the cover artwork of Clapton’s 1988 box set Crossroads, and several of his paintings – including one commissioned by Andrew Lloyd Webber – are displayed at London’s Drury Lane Theatre.

“There is no kind of therapy like the one you have from starting and seeing a picture through to the end,” Ronnie said, explaining his work.

“In a secret sort of way, I like the people who I draw to see the way I’ve depicted them. Unlike music, it’s a solo effort.

There’s no one else to blame.”

Ronnie’s collection is free to view, and you’ve got until April 19 to pop in for a look.
