Simple Lighting Tips for Art Paintings - How to Light Art - Best Way to Showcase Art with Light


Lighting tips for art:


I’m not a pro, but I do have a few simple tips for lighting art:




METALLIC ART

1.       Metallics require light! If you purchase an artwork with metallic on it, you must be sure to hang it in a light-filled space or position lights to hit it. Metallics without light are just flat color!


See the metallics pop out with some light on them?


Here, the same area looks just like flat color (no direct light)




LIGHT, NEUTRAL ROOMS

2.       Light, bright rooms seem like a great option for artwork, but be careful: Neutrals and anything super muted can disappear into the walls. Bright art works best for super light areas. Even dark paintings can work; however be sure the light indirect on the art or it will just appear as a dark, flat canvas.



This pops out on a very neutral-light space!





DIRECT OR INDIRECT?



3.       Positioning lights on paintings is fine unless they are super glossy. The glare from the gloss (or resin art) will often create a distraction from the actual artwork. Indirect lighting is usually best.


The depth of this painting in the darker areas needs light. Direct or indirect. Avoid shining lights directly on artwork that has a very glossy/shiny finish.
