I usually paint at night under an artificial light. I have a natural blue light bulb and a regular warm, orange light bulb. To challenge myself I painted the same set up illuminated with both types in order to see the difference.

I gave my best shot by painting what I saw and keeping in mind that every object in shadow should contain some color complementary to the temperature of the light.
