Grey, Grey and Grey
Having applied undercoat yesterday and then opening a bottle of wine, today has been time for the first coat of grey. I seemed to have complemented my grey paint quite subconsciously with a grey outfit and my grey hair.
This took about an hour and already there are a couple of patches drying at a different speed because the plaster is a little more porous but overall it is drying out to the colour I had in mind. Another coat in a few hours' time! This is pretty much the first wall I have painted with any finesse and suitable confidence to attack the edges. It's always easier with a wingman who has a ton of experience at such things.
