This is an added extra to the daily painting – a technique, background information or a story.
See my little illuminated set-up!
These little flexible reading lights are from IKEA and you can clip them on and position them. Iluminating the subject increases the tonal contrasts and of course, creates strong interesting shadows. I love shadows and relfections and the contrast of cold blueish whites against soft warm illuminated whites. A ‘still-life box’ means you can control the light source.
