Sink lighting search: help narrow it down?

Search for "kitchen sink lighting" pulled up 222 posts. Can you help me narrow it down?
Kitchen new construction in a 200 yr. old house.
White shaker style cabinents. other 'colonial' references
using simple recessed lights (ceiling is 7.5 feet. yes, that's correct)
Over the sink is one place I can have something more interesting: but it has to be really good task lighting. I cannot stand working in my own shadow. Eyes are not young anymore.
Punched tin is a perfect look, but the wattage limitation is a deal breaker.

I also need 3 wall lights, so it would be great to have these and the sink light related to one another. But these are more for ambience, not for work.
Is there other info I can provide?
