Colors are perceived by the way light travels to our eyes. The way colors of artwork are perceived will be different depending on the light source it’s given. Adequate lightning is an important factor when it comes to showing the true colors of an art piece. What is the best way of lighting your art collection? Here are some tips:
Natural lighting is often seen as the best way to light up art. It will provide any piece of art with more vibrant, deep and natural colors compared to artificial light. It is the perfect solution, but its not always possible.
Direct sunlight also has the ability to discolor art therefore should be avoided. Indirect sunlight is a much better way of getting all the benefits without degrading the painting.
Artificial controlled lighting can be used when there isn’t access to natural light. The idea behind artificial lighting is that you’re in control of the intensity, color and brightness. Lights that mimic daylight work best. They can be placed so they hit the painting at a 30 degree angle for the least amount of reflected glare. Multiple lights or track lighting can also be used to reduce glare on an oil painting. Acrylic paintings will have less reflected glare.
LED lights can be used if there is little space between the light and the art.
Finally, you will decide what looks best for displaying your artwork. Whether you want brighter light for more vibrant color expression, or lower wattage for a warmer more intimate display, inviting viewers to look closer. The decision is yours.
