Irish star Pierce Brosnan uses James Bond movies to brush up on his painting.

The actor insists on having an easel set up with canvases in his trailer when he's working on 007 films - so he can paint at whenever he wants..

Brosnan says, "I was good at art at school and the art has stayed with me.

"I'm always drawing on the scripts. When I do the Bond movies, they last seven months, so I usually put an easel up in the dressing room and have canvases there."
