On November 15, the Santa Clarita Artists’ Association award-winning watercolorist, Fealing Lin of San Marino, will make a watercolor demonstration. Her demonstration piece will be raffled off at the end of the evening.
Born in Taiwan, Lin began her journey as a protégé of renowned professor Ching-Jung Chen in Taiwan, and studied with watercolorist and senior art historian professor Verna Wells. Originally following her family tradition of medicine and dentistry, Fealing ultimately abandoned her tray of instruments and high-speed drills in favor of her palette and brushes. Now she is a teacher, demonstrator, judge, and active exhibitor.
Professor William Blackshaw, President of the Royal Watercolor Society in England said, “Fealing Lin paints poems that vibrate with light and color… long may she continue to delight the eye and move the spirit.” With fluidity of colors, Lin combines impressionistic strokes and semi-abstract techniques to elicit life and movement in her portrait and landscape watercolors.

“My passion for watercolor,” says Lin, “comes from the opportunity it gives me to be totally spontaneous in the pursuit of traditional watercolor transparency which is the “glow” from the white paper that emerges through the paint once a fusion occurs from the application of wet onto wet.” Her paintings adorn the paper with both harmony and emotion.
Lin is an annual guest instructor at Yosemite National Park, an instructor at Brand Art Studios at Brand Library in Glendale, and San Gabriel Recreation Center in San Gabriel. She was featured at Descanso Gardens Gallery for 10 consecutive years. She has taught watercolor workshops throughout California and the US.
In addition, Lin is a signature member of National Watercolor Society, Watercolor West, and the Missouri Watercolor Society. She won numerous awards and was juried in many national exhibitions including Transparent Watercolor Society of America, Brand National, Audubon Artist, San Diego Watercolor International and many others.
