I bought two of the Ott lights to hang over my bench they are supposed to have the right color "temperature". Like some others that have posted, I also have supplemental lights to minimize shadows. Florescent bulbs come in a variety of of colors from warm to cool. They are a lot more expensive than the standard florescent bulbs but can match daylight or other lighting environments more closely if you want.

I recently bought a cheap pair of working closeup glasses for when I am modeling at the bench. When I told my optometrist what I was going to use them for she told me to make sure I had a lot of light. I believe she said that as we age we need as much as seven times more light than we do when we are young. That probably explains why kids can read in low light conditions.
