If you watch the editor shots of the four lights very closely you might only see a small effect, but don't worry about that. When they are combined with Global Illumination they will work in the way we want them to. In reality the whole sky works as a kind of huge light source. You, of course, have the main direction of the sun, but at the same time you also have light from an infinite amount of directions reflected from the landscape and other objects outside of the windows. These are the four secondary lights that I set up (Fig.04 - 11).

The combination of the sunlight and the four secondary lights might now look like this... not very impressive (Fig.12).
