I use one or two 500W halogen work lights on stands. You can see one in this image in the back of the temporary spray booth that I set up in my shop when I need to spray something. The key is to get raking light so you can see the surface imperfections clearly. I like to work off a lazy susan arrangement when possible so I can rotate the piece being sprayed. This allows me to always direct my overspray towards the exhaust fan as well as not have to move the light constantly to inspect the freshly sprayed surfaces. On a piece like the table base below, it’s a real time saver.
