Default Studio Lighting


I'm writing an article on studio lighting. I've asked various artists how they illuminate their studios, and the three most common scenarios I hear about are:

- Natural north light
- Full spectrum electric lights (either incandescent or compact fluorescents)
- Traditional (warm) incandescent lights (these artists feel that since artwork, once purchased, is rarely viewed under full spectrum it should not be painted under full spectrum).

I will need to be fairly specific in the article, i.e. recommend fixtures, wattage, etc. If any of you have experience on this subject, have had good luck with your studio’s lighting, etc, I would love to hear it.
