Generally, I paint only during the daylight - however, once in a while I would like to do some work at night.....what are the thoughts on studio lighting, etc?
I use the day light compact floressence bulbs with an aluminum reflector when painting after dark.
Day light is the key or they are too yellow...
I use a combination of both warm and cool sources when I paint at night. I do use a daylight florescent, but I also use some incandescent. I think it depends on your subject matter and the intent of your final piece.
When painting from life, I prefer that my subject be lit with cool light - natural daylight or northlight.
It helps if my canvas or paper is lit with similar light so I can mix my colors correctly.
So, I use 5000 or so kelvin bulbs to light both my subject or painting surface. Those small daylight lamps that come on stand light my subject quite well. This means that the lights will be cooler while the shadows will be warmer in temperature.
I paint a lot under artificial light for a number of reasons, not the least of which I like to paint when the world is quiet after dark. I used to mix incandescent and fluorescent lighting, but I prefer the large daylight fluorescents to get the best results. Blues end up a little too cool under warmer studio lighting when placed in natural daylight for my taste!
I have 8 fluorescent tube on the ceiling all 65000K. They are the daylight fluorescent tubes. I paint during the day and at night, when the mood is there I have to create.
Very nice video... Described every application part of the LED Light....Pretty good to purchase https
