Off and running again
Bought and installed new lighting system using the 5000 kelvin 84 on the index tubes suspended about 2 feet out from above my 4x8' easel. The test was that I put one of those big paintings I was so disappointed with on the easel and it looked like it did when I brought it downstairs, so now, the way I look at it, the lighting conditions under which I paint will allow the painting to look correct in other lighting. If not, I'll just have to get other bulbs. They make 6500 kelvin bulbs but they definitely have a blue cast. I think I'll start on a new painting and see how it goes.
