I have a lamp I use largely for painting, but there's nothing special about it except it's mounted on my painting table.

I use an array of LED lamps not specifically made for painting but do fairly closely match daylight. As they are not made for the job I voted never.
I dread them breaking as they are no longer manufactured and those replacing them are made to match incandescent lamps. I have a number of them they do not give as good light for painting.

I use two Ott lamps for my painting.

It depends whether I am painting inside the house or outside. I do use a specific lamp when painting inside, as it gives the brightest artificial light that I have available. When I paint outside, I don't need a lamp.

Almost all of my painting is inside the house and I have a very nice LED light that our neighbours gave me that provides a lot of light
Sometimes I paint outside in the summer but 95% plus of my painting is done with a light

I use a special OTT light for painting miniatures.
For large items such as terrain, I do not use anything special.

I use a ceiling light made up of four small, bright, spotlights. They are carefully positioned so that one shines over each shoulder ! So I count them as a special painting light.
Much better than a table mounted light, which always seems to shine straight into my eyes no matter where it is positioned.

Yep, but it's new and not actually been used for the job yet. I had another dedicated halogen desk lamp from Ikea. It got knocked off the table and broke. The new one is a "not-OTT" crafting light (LEDs) with a built in magnifying glass on a gooseneck (separate from the light). Got it on clearance for $10 USD at a Hobby Lobby. I expect I'll get some time to use it soon as the holidays come up.

I have an OTT light for the table and daylight bulbs in the ceiling lights. They help with painting, reading and computer use.
