Studio lighting

Hello friends-
       In my frenzy to get the last ounce of good stuff out of summer, I am
trying to make a studio out of our basement rec room. I'd like some advice
from those of you who have done this on lighting. It is a walk-out, so there
is some natural light, but with a northern exposure, so its pretty limited.
What do you suggest....flourescent fixtures, track lighting????? Right now
there are two incandescent fixtures and they are not at all adequate...lots
of shadows and I can't tell what true colors are.
       Is there anything else ypou are either glad you did or wish you had
done in designing your studio space? I work in mixed media....fibers and
bookmaking, so I will be using lots of materials, both wet and dry.
Thanks...tomorrow I have to start working in my other studio...the one I
share with 25 middle schoolers at a time!
