An alternative to purchasing an expensive spray booth is to make your own. Make a list of items that you need. You can use a furnace blower or a large fan. If it's about three feet across and has a belt, it can move a lot of air. You can hang it outside a shop window which puts the motor outside of the fumes. You could find these items at a junkyard or lumber yard. You mount the fan so that it blows into the shop through a filter and creates a pressurized paint booth. This will help keep things cleaner as the air is removed out of the area. This alternative works well. The dust is kept to a minimum and the fumes are not as strong. The area is kept cleaner and the booth is also better.
I am a begining oil painter. I was wondering what colors you suggest a beginer buy. I`ve heard students in my classes talking about how they use only a few "basic" colors, in which they can mix a large range of colors from. Do you have any tips?
