New Lights, New Canvas, New Attitude!
Oh baby, I finally received my new studio lights. Who knew lights could give someone such a rush. I can now paint any time without the restriction of actually day light. My studio is not well lit but has great windows. When I was not working fulltime this was all I needed. Once I started working, I found my painting time restricted to weekend day light hours. My weekends also include fishing and sailing, so painting was getting squeezed.
When I first started painting, lighting did not matter. I had no idea how to mix colors or that I should. Let’s just say that made for some brightly colored pieces right out of the tube that were even brighter when I took them out of my deemly lit basement. I am still challenged by mixing colors, but at least I know that I should knock back the chroma a bit and work under good color lighting.
4:30 am – Getting in some painting before work.
