I've been thinking about this for some time. Not sure how to go about it. Currently, I'm using 4 light bulbs. My paintings are coming out a little too dark when viewed on a wall in normal lighting. I'm wondering if I should go down to one or two lights so that my paintings appear brighter. Will it accomplish this? It might not.... I certainly want a correct painting in terms of color and value. Or should all these paintings have their own lights when on the wall? Most people around here do not want lights too blue. They are in the 2700 temperature range.
Or should I just adjust the photo brighter and still work with this many lights? I just want a painting that can be viewed in the most optimal but practical way. Most people are not going to shine 4 light bulbs at it. Thoughts?
