Ronnie Wood's paintings make Rolling Stones rocker £1 million in a year

Ronnie Wood's paintings are in the black … to the tune of more than £1 million.

New accounts filed by the guitarist for his art company show he made a £1,437,277 profit last year.

It is the first time his art has broken the million-pound mark.

Ronnie has been selling reproduction concert setlists from last year's Stones Sixty anniversary tour, and his work has been snapped up around the world.

He has also had exhibitions in London and produced oil paintings and prints of his bandmates. He recently recreated Rembrandt's masterpiece The Storm On The Sea Of Galilee.

He has been painting since he was at Ealing Art College in the 1960s with fellow rockers Freddie Mercury and Pete Townshend, and also collects Picasso's work.

The Paint it Black rocker, 75, picked up the brush again in the 80s. He once said: "When I am painting, I lose track of time. I get engrossed. It's great." The Stones made £98m on their tour of the UK and Europe last year.

The Rolling Stones embarked on their Sixty tour in June last year. It began in Spain before subsequently seeing them perform in venues in eight other countries in Europe.

The tour marked the 60th anniversary of their formation, with the band having released more than 20 studio albums and won various awards in the decades since.

Sixty concluded in August last year. It had included performances in England. The band took to the stage for a gig in Liverpool and two dates in London over the summer.

The setlist for the tour had included songs such as You Can't Always Get What You Want and (I Can't Get No) Satisfaction. It also included Jumpin' Jack Flash.
