Good lighting

I'm definitely on a budget, and although I love the work of the professional photographer I've been hiring, it's $20 an image.

Enter my resourceful husband. He purchased a series of clip lights at KMart at $7 apiece, affixed them to two no-longer-working halogen lamp poles (as shown below), and took some great quality images of my latest paintings.

Wow, wow, wow. What a gorgeous piece. You just want to dive in.

The lighting on a painting is everything. It brings the work to life. And, that setup is a brilliant idea.

Thank you, I'm so glad you like this painting!

Dean, I think he used regular household light bulbs, nothing special. The colors came out very true to life.
