He may have been described as a rock animal in his time, but the Rolling Stone Ronnie Wood shows a gentler side to his nature in an exhibition of paintings which displays his passion for horses.
An accomplished artist, Wood has lived in Ireland since 1998 and breeds horses at his farm in Co Kildare.

Fifty new paintings to be shown at Gallery 27 in Cork Street, central London, finds him moving away from rock star portraits to further embrace the inspiration he draws from animals.

"I have always been interested in animals and have painted them for many years," said Wood. The musician first showed his art in San Francisco in the 1980s and has since staged many exhibitions around the world in cities including London, New York and Tokyo.

In the past he has painted portraits of the singers Johnny Rotten and Rod Stewart.

His bandmates Mick Jagger, Keith Richards and Bill Wyman have posed too.

Jonathan Poole, who is organising the exhibition, which opens on March 6, said: "Ronnie takes his art very seriously and I have the utmost respect for both his artistic and musical abilities."
