Lots of great light. I've not seen one of those.

Beautiful! When I opened your email it was like a ray of sunshine hit me.

Julian, have you found LED lights that have decent color accuracy? What are they?

Yes,please share about your new lighting. That's one of my biggest struggles.

Yes, CRI 96+ and seems well made, you'll need stands too. I bought two lights (a deal on amazon uk)

Yes, light can be a real problem in the winter, these seem very much like daylight, and I use them either as an add-on to daylight or on their own

Hello,

I'm an art teacher...just looking at buying an LED panel for my classroom. How are you using it "as a window"...are you putting it near or above your still life as a light source? would like to know...I can see the brightness in the painting....this time of year everything goes dark so quickly...

Yes, I'm using it either next to the window, if it's daytime as an extra boost, or on it's own positioned above head height tilted down on the subject, it gives enough light but having said all that, I'd prefer a window with enough light; the still life paintings I did in Venice were in a room with large north facing windows, that's the ideal!
