Boy, do want to know what is intimidating?
Painting a 27' swath of dark blue and purple on a white wall.
gathering supplies, taping and adding plastic really make the actual painting downright thrilling and invigorating
I found out very quickly that painting feet instead of inches is a very different experience. On top of that using wall paint is like painting with cement after working with high quality acrylics. I had to teach myself in situ how to blend wall paint with a roller and a 2.5"brush.
I really had to work quickly to get the appropriate balance of smoothness and visible strokes.
