Yesterday was a Monday. As usual, this day of the week found me dealing with a lot things outside of making art. Late in the day I did get to the studio to make a significant revision to the major drawing shown in yesterday' s post.
The color temperature of the image of the revised drawing is different than its previous image. The revised version is a much better drawing, and it is, of course, on the same paper. It does not look the same because of the new lights in the studio. Among yesterday's outside of art-making activities was a change to the major bank of fluorescent lights in the studio—the old larger diameter T12 fluorescent tubes were exchanged for the newer T8 bulbs and their ballasts. The new light is whiter, and stronger, with less energy use. Thus the color change. I will white balance my camera today, under the new light, so this will not be a problem with my photographed images going forward.
