How do you light the model and the surface?

I am looking for information or an explanation on how one can simultaneously light the model and the painting/drawing surface. I often have to work at night, and have found it difficult get proper lighting on both. Usually, I end up lighting the model with a lamp and working with my surface in the dark, and I periodically turn the lights on to see how my painting or drawing looks.

Tips, suggestions, and especially pictures appreciated!
