I have wanted to try some different lighting lately, and I think I really liked how this one lit. I actually used two different lights bulbs. One light is just a regular daylight bulb, and the second is a pink bulb that gives off a warm, soft, and sort of reddish color. I really liked the color produced by the two lights together, and I think I will try it again. The actual photo of this painting doesn't show the subtlety of the table top too well, but there are three sheets of paper.
