I have an OttLite L139AB Task Lamp for travel painting that is amazing. On my desk I have reduced down to a Phive LED Desk Lamp, Architect Task Lamp but I am starting to get annoyed with it. It's just not bright enough for streaming. 

I'm now looking at those Daylight Company Lamp that @K2h2m3 recommended. But Geesh they are not cheep. The one I think will work for me is Luminos-U35600 and that puppy is $415 🤯

Although, that U35600 would work great and I'm thinking of mounting it to my existing wall mount I have for a boom arm. Might look for alternatives that are cheaper priced. $415 seems unreasonable for LED lighting.

Okay so after seeing Arc 724's post I went to the Daylight sight to look. Two of my lamps they no longer make and they use 18watt daylight tubes. The replacement for my desk lamp seems to be the Techni artist and drawing lamp. I scored mine for half price at a store closing and I'd be unhappy if I had to replace it. The second one is a portable version that I bought for my wife at half price on evilbay. The third is the smart travel lamp on their site that i bought for about seventy dollars on Amazon for my traveling paint kit. The smart travel lamp is good but nowhere near as bright as the others.

I wanted a travel lamp that i could just keep broken down to take to cons with me and picked up one off of Amazon, which was a disappointment and not wanting to save more dollars for Bones 6, I went hunting.  Honestly, I'm surprised there's no sticky for lights/lamps.  In any case, after reading the posts here, I found out that Amazon has the s Luminos-D35600 for $265 on Amazon.   Not sure if its different than the s Luminos-U35600.

Well, the Luminos showed up and holy cats~!  Its pretty amazing and hands down the best light I've purchased to date.  I thought I'd show you all a short comparison of the three lights I have.  I'm going to post two pics for each, one at a normal height that I'd use for painting and one kind of close up I'd try to use for pictures:

The first one (and the one I've been using the longest and its really been great to use as a regular painting light) is the Phive CL-1 LED light.

Next up is the light that I bought to use as a travel lamp.  It was awful for miniature painting for me.  Its made by Argind with no model name, I can pm someone the link if they're really intereed.  In any case, here are the picsL

Lastly is the Luminos.  Thankfully the base of the CL-1 fits the Luminos.

I do have to say that the luminos is twice a long as my CL-1 and so I'll bring the CL-1 as my travel light.  And as a bonus pic, this is how much the luminos lights up the area on my painting desk:

I need to get better lighting for my paint table, what do yaw recommend and why?

 

I just bought a couple of cheap Architech lamps from Amazon and picked up some daylight LEDs from the hardware store.   You can spend tons of money on fancy lights but I find this works perfectly fine for my purposes.

I paint near a window. The sun is a pretty good light source. The downside is that I can really only get the full benefit in the morning. And of course painting at night is out of the question.
