I am an artist whose media is oil on canvas. I bought this bulb for my studio to enable me to see my colors (both on palette and canvas) accurately. I am extremely happy with the results. I bought a cheap torchiere lamp which I can move as needed and it works well both in the day and at night.
I've been painting with two of these new bulbs for about a month and, so far, I am very pleased. The color rendering is crisp, sharp and as true to the same colors in natural light as any light source I've tried in 35 years. As I work in a studio with very little natural light, finding a reliable light source has been an ongoing challenge for many years. I believe I have found a light source which will allow me to bring paintings back into the studio and continue working on them with little or no color shift.
Thank you for the cri light I was looking for!
I do color Analysis for a living.
I need the 6500 K to color match and the 5000 K for clients to view their works. Both these bulbs work well for the task and are reasonably priced compared to the professional alternatives.
I use these lights for painting. They are excellent for this purpose because there's no color shift.The prince is great, too. Will definitely buy again as needed. Highly recommended.
Wow, these are fantastic lamps. I was worried that the color temperature would be too blue, since I'm used to using something closer to 5000K. It turns out these are fine, though--the color rendering is so good that the light has a very "neutral" quality to it, with no noticeable color casts, despite having a relatively high color temperature. It's a pretty close match to the indirect light coming through the windows of my studio, actually. They seem brighter than 800 lumens, too, though that could just be that they haven't "burned in" yet. Highly recommended!
I have purchased two of the wavelight bulbs and they are both an excellent source of natural light. I'm happy I found y'all and will continue to use these lamps for a long while. Thank you.
I love this bulb . The colors on my still life's are much easier to read.
