So, the fork ran away with the spoon, but the pig was sure they were bad for each other, so he tracked them down and had an intervention.
And now on to lights. At my last workshop I tried a new bulb that I liked, so I bought one today and compared it to my other two regulars. I found it interesting so I thought I'd share the pros and cons (in my opinion). From left to right -->
1. Ecosmart 27W, 5000K spiral florescent; 2. Sylvania 39W, 2800K flood; 3. Philips 60W, 3000K, LED, bright white (on sale right now at Home Depot! - this is the new one for me).
Below are some pictures I took with my camera set to P - thus the colors remained true. You can see that 1. is the whitest - bordering on blue, and the softest, most spread out light. I've liked this one in the past for doing flowers. 2. is definitely the yellowest, and also the most focused of all three lights, which I often like (and have used most often). I also like the sharper shadow edge, and the drama the light creates. And 3. is still fairly yellow, but for me not overly so (I've tried MUCH yellower lights). The light also spreads out a bit, which can be useful. It also doesn't break (necessarily) if you drop it : ) and it doesn't get nearly as hot as the other two when on. I did several paintings with the LED light today and really liked it. I will probably switch around between all three depending on what I'm looking for.
