Here are the lights I use. Lowel Omni-Light 500 Watt Focus Flood Light O1-10 B&H Photo As far what kind of art I copy just about everything. Oils, acrylic, watercolor....etc. Some are bright, others subtle. The big advantage I have is here at work everything is calibrated to my Epson 9900 printer. So what I see on my monitor is very very close to what I print out. And all the lights in the lab for viewing prints are daylight balanced. I'll tell you though, paint soaks in so much light that some of the colors are very tricky to get right. I sometimes have to go into Photoshop and tweak certain colors as various paint pigments reflect differently than others or they will absorb more light than others.
