Photographing artwork

I have been working on rephotographing all my artwork, and rugs and everything. It is quite a daunting task. I have learned that natural light is the absolute best lighting. Outside on a cloudy day is the best. Of course it is sunny and about 20 degrees right now, so I was experimenting inside by my south windows. It is the best with the indirect light. Also set your white balance on your camera to natural light and don't use a flash. Do an experiment and take a photo of something inside with a flash and then take it outside on a cloudy day. Then compare and see how much better the colors are with the natural light. I am trying to retake every photo I have on Etsy. Maybe that will help my sales!!!!
