Spina Di Pesce

This is the last of the herringbone linen I got from an old mill in Germany. I first used it in this series of small oil paintings in 2010. I have been wanting to stretch it up for years but somehow never got around to it so I brought it to Italy.

It is so much rougher than the usual canvas linen and together with the stencil and coloured stripe it makes for a great base to work into.
