Fabric is important whether painting portraits, the clothed figure or still life. Fabric has been used throughout the history of painting to indicate social class, fashion and/or mood. Compare in your mind Sargent's full length portraits of society ladies dressed in elegant evening wear with the works documenting fishermen of the Adirondaks. You can immediately identify the fabrics in each work. There is no question the ladies wear silks, satins and other rare and expensive fabrics while the fishermen wear flannel and wool, often homespun and worn.

Lin's students report that her methods relieve their tensions and inhibitions about "oil painting." Drawing, building the grisaille or monochromatic value painting then adding color builds confidence and success. Come build beautiful paintings with Lin.
