Rolling Stones guitarist Ronnie Wood could be in for some satisfaction after putting one of his paintings of the band up for sale for £300,000.

The rock ‘n’ roll legend’s painting of his band is 1.5 metres by two metres in size and on display at Castle Fine Art, at the ICC, in Birmingham City Centre.

The 66-year-old, who listens to Mozart at his easel and whose first love was art, took formal training at Ealing College of Art, London.

Wood said: ‘When I get inspired, I get almost possessed and I just have to paint.

‘There is no kind of therapy like the one you have from starting and seeing a picture through to the end.’

It was as a child Wood showed early signs of artistic skill.

At school, he was pulled out of science classes to paint murals. When he was 14, his music teacher paid him £4 for a snow scene.

Wood said: ‘My dad used to slave away all week for that. I gave half to my mum.’

Gallery manager Beth McCarthy said of the 40 original works, about 20 were still available.

She said the art gave an insight into Wood’s mind.

‘His life has been very well documented,’ she said. ‘He could have been a professional artist.

‘If you’re not necessarily a singer, but a musician, someone who creates music and writes songs, that gives people a sort of poetic sensibility.

‘They’re also, just by virtue of doing that, quite brave. It’s a similar thing with painting.’

The exhibition runs until August 9.

It will be followed by never-before-seen works by Bob Dylan in his Drawn Blank 2013 Collection. Beth said Dylan told the gallery he found art relaxing.

She said: ‘It’s physically hard work touring night after night.

‘For Ronnie Wood and Bob Dylan it’s almost like meditation making a drawing. Hours and hours go by without you noticing.’

The Beatles were “inspired by the musique concrète of German composer and early electronic music pioneer Karlheinz Stockhausen…”  as SCOTT THILL has asserted.
