Hi Joan,
I'll be putting my helper lights above the 5x5 windows. I'll have to find them on-line too.

I do plan on posting pictures when I get into my studio, and I hope you will too. And I'll look into the Velux blinds, thanks for the suggestion.

I hope I won't be sorry about the skylights, but I painted the figure under skylights while in school and it seemed to work out fine. Although for portraits I prefer side lighting rather than overhead. My main reasoning for getting the skylights is for teaching purposes. They are centered along one of the long walls and I could set a model there and probably get 10 or so students in a semicircle around the model stand.

You will probably end up with your lights before I do. I would appreciate if you let me know what you get and what you think of them.
