Re: lighting in my studio
I use several kinds of light. For basic building up of the clay figure any bright light will do, but when I get down to refining the shape, I use a single bright light on a floor stand that casts distinct shadows. The shadows bring to view even the tiniest variations in lumpiness and in surface texture, things that tend to escape notice otherwise, but that will be noticed in the final work.
Sculpture requires different lighting than does painting.
