CAN ANYONE PLEASE INFORM ON PAINTING LIGHT FROM A LIGHT BULB IE A WHITE TWINKLE CHRISTMAS BULB
THANK YOU ALL AS ALWAYS
I would say white with a touch of ultramarine blue in it.
Antonin's answer is probably great for oils or acrylics, but I am wondering what medium you are using. It may depend on whether you want a warm glow or a cool glow.

You could use white with a touch of cadmium yellow medium, as well.... but the more important point is that the white will only look bright if it's placed on a darkish background. It's the contrast between light & dark that makes the "white" look bright. Similar example would be painting the twinkles of sunlight on water.

I would concur with Judyl and would add that you may want to keep the outer edges of the light very soft and incorporate a little of the surrounding tone into the outer edges of the light.
The bulb should be brightest in the center and gradually soften as the light spreads outward. It will gently brighten areas around it to the degree a small builb could.
