Light setup

Hi guys! Im gonna buy the light! I would paint on a vertical studio easel, maybe at 45 or 40 degrees angle.
I would buy 2 light led for my light container that is lile this https://www.haistore.it/01586761007/img/i1v2_350809.jpg. one warm one cold.
Could u give me advice for the lights? Maybe the most important thing for mw is that they are flicker free for eyes comfort. Thanks

(Also if you reccomend other shapes for the led light container)

If you have already bought your light fixture, and need a tube type LED bulb, Viribright makes them as do others. Just make sure it is 95+ CRI and is the color temperature you want. LED tubes made to replace the old style fluorescent tubes do not flicker like those horrible old school nasty things do.

Viribright makes excellent standard style bulbs that can be found on Amazon and Ebay fairly cheaply.

I have several E26 (standard light bulb) reflectors on studio stands that I use with high CRI LED bulbs, and they are more than OK to light a 16x20 panel. If you can find one with barn doors that is nice to keep light off your computer screen or from hitting your subject from directions you don't want. You can use ceiling mounted light fixtures, but once mounted, they are difficult to move. If your easel is always in the same place and position, that would not be a problem. Get the angle right to reduce unwanted reflections.


A prebuilt LED studio light on a floor stand with barn doors would also work. I plan to get at least one very soon. Just make sure it is 95+ CRI and can produce the color temperature you want. The light panel could be dropped down from a track light on a rod or mounted on a studio floor stand. They offer more versatility than tube bulbs in a shop light fixture, but cost more of course. The LED light panels are easier to find than screw in bulb type setups but also cost more. The positives of ceiling mounted is there is nothing to trip over. The negative would be that you hare drastically limited by where the lights can be placed and directed.

I have not used this light panel kit, but for the money, it looks pretty decent.

3200K to 5600K color temperature, 96+ CRI, complete and ready to use. I have purchased other Neewer products and they were certainly worth what I paid for them, usually better than I expected for the price. LED light panels would also be nice for lighting still life setups and portraits. You can get more pro level and durable light panel kits like from GVM and others for about double the price if money isn't an issue.

The angle of the light is critical. With the lights high above and one on either side of your easel, at a 35 degree offset from the vertical plane of the canvas/panel is ideal.
