I need a light for discrete painting, possibly for indoors, but mostly for night time plein air.
I have decided between two models I can get locally. They both have adjustment for colour temperature, and brightness. The cheaper/smaller model only adjusts to 3 color temp from cool, natural, and warm, A range from 3000, 400, and 6500 K. I seem to recall Mark saying he wanted 5000-5500.
One well known outdoor painter said he preferred slightly blue light at night, so maybe 4K would be OK. Just wondering whether I should splash out for the more expensive light that has infinite adjustment, I would anyway, were it not for the fact it is a little large and heavy. Otherwise it is really nice. But is 4000K a deal breaker?
They have different "clamps" but that is OK, I expect to have to adapt those.
I would also be interested if you got similar lights for computer work. I would be interested if the light range is really low to POW. I figure at night outside I would need fairly low light.
