New Lamp! – And Some More Cutthroats

Guess what… I decided to buy a new desk lamp, yay! Seriously, this is the second biggest investment in to my hobby corner and therefor it’s a good reason to celebrate.

For quite a long time I’ve been strugling with bad lighting at my desk. It’s one of the key things when you paint, so this time I decided to invest a bit more than just a round-trip to Ikea. So I ordered Daylight’s Triple Bright Lamp, the very same that Mikko also has.

Even though this one is HUGE compared to my previous lamp, it’s a beauty!

Of course I had some minor problems just when the thing arrived to me yesterday. I ordered the lamp from Amazon.co.uk, and since it’s a British electronics, they are a bit different to ours.

Very British problems…

…Overcome with a help of an adapter!

I’ve yet to test the thing in real action. Meanwhile I took some test shots of my three finished Carroburg Cutthroats and I must say the light is amazing. Enjoy!

  1. Congratulations on your new lamp! I have been using that very lamp for the last few year, and it is fantastic. While certainly a little expensive, I think investing in a good light is one of the best things a hobbyist can do, as it helps with virtually everything. I hope you enjoy it!

  2. Cool lamp, but really who cares? I came here for those cutthroats!!! Goodness gracious are they beautiful! The football in particular is really gorgeous. Also I can tell that the turf isn’t just any ol’ static grass. I’m a huge fan of each piece.

  3. I finally purchased a new lamp as well, and can’t recommend it enough. I had a small adjustable LED lamp Ikea, and while it was okay…”upgrading” to a multi-position swivel lamp with a Daylight bulb made a big difference. Even if you don’t get a really nice lamp, it’s definitely worth it to invest in a daylight bulb.

    I’ll have to check out the particular lamp you got though, it looks like you’re probably getting light from multiple angles, which you can’t really do with a single bulb.
