    The east face in the morning for the whitest light and the southwest corner in the afternoon for that yellowish look.

    It needed to be asked. I was just trying to get all the facts.

    If you want to have consistent light throughout the day, you can do what painters have done for centuries and put your windows facing the north sky.

    North light is diffuse and indirect. It won't cast strong shadows and the colour temperature (warmth/coolness) doesn't vary much outside of twilight hours. It's great for accurately selecting or matching colours.

    Windows high on the wall or even extending to the adjoining roof give the maximum effect. Then you can put on your beret and do some real artistic finishing work
    All the best,
