I find painting to be very relaxing, whether it's on a canvas with aquarelles, or painting over a wall in a house. When I first embarked on a new project of remodeling a townhome, one of the walls in the master bedroom was magenta. When the sun was setting the entire room had a pink glow to it because of the color. That color lasted for about 2 days before I decided on getting something else. The people that owned it before had very poor taste in colors. The kitchen was this funky, puke-like olive green. It is now a sandstone beige, which is a fancy way of saying light yellow. Have you considered doing any crafted/custom techniques when painting walls? Or ever tried doing any remodeling on your own?
