Wood selling nude portrait of wife

Ronnie Wood is selling a naked portrait of his wife for £200,000.

The 66-year-old Rolling Stone has painted wife Sally, 36, in an erotic pose, kneeling with her legs apart, her eyes closed and her hands behind her head.

Ronnie is offering the nude portrait - titled Sally - for sale at Castle Fine Art gallery in London's Mayfair, as part of his Raw Instinct collection.

The huge canvass measures approximately 1.3 metres by 1.6 metres. At £200,000 it is the most expensive piece of artwork in the exhibition, with other paintings inspired by his music career and costing between £10,000 to £50,000.

Sally posed for Ronnie at his artist-in-residence studio at the gallery.

Ronnie told the Daily Mirror his wife of two years is an excellent muse. "We always have fun together, Sall's great at modelling," he said. "There's plenty more, we did some more recently in the Seychelles."

Another nude portrait of Sally, entitled The Bum, is currently on display in America at Connecticut Benton museum in America. Ronnie produced the piece on his iPad using a paintbrush application, which shows his wife from behind, lying on her front on a bed.
