I set up my front porch (enclosed but with basically a wall of windows) for my studio. It's about 13' x 7' with windows on the 13' side.
I have aluminum mini blinds covering the windows, but the lighting is quite different between daytime and nighttime.
I've also begun building Mark's shadowbox pretty much exactly to spec, except I added a lower shelf for storage. I haven't enclosed the back and sides yet to block light.
My question is; how do you manage daylight in your studio?
Should I get a blackout drape to cover my windows completely?
Will the differences in day/night light in the room be problematic, without additional window covering, once my shadowbox is covered on the sides and back?
I'm thinking I'll need to blackout the whole room to keep lighting consistent.
I considered trying to paint in daylight with the blinds adjusted to let light in, the windows face the North/Northeast. There are buildings across the street that may subtly reflect different colored and levels of light.
I guess I could experiment, but wondering what you guys are doing.
