That always reads like silver corpse to me but I'm sure it looks good😉
In London. Keen but lazy.
Ha ha, I blame predictive text!
You can use a mini roller to apply it. It needs to be the foam kind for applying gloss paint, not the fluffy ones for emulsion. It's less messy, and ideal for a quick revamp each year on worn/weathered bits.
It's a place where beautiful isn't enough of a word....
I live in west central Scotland - not where that photo is...

We’ve had artificial ivy on one of our trellis for two years now. South facing fence, full sun. It still looks great. Most people never notice it’s not real.
We needed a quick privacy screen as the neighbours cut a large tree next to our fence. Originally it was meant to be a temporary solution until we grow some climbers - but we will keep it now as it looks good and doesn’t require any care.
I think the colour choice should reflect your gardening style. If you are going for lines and formality and modern, then a shade of grey would be fab. However, if you are going for a Mediterranean vibe, blues are purple would be my choice. Cottage-y type gardens would suit the lighter blues and lavender and greens...…..
Paint choice is very personal but just remember that once you start to paint a fence a colour, you will need to repaint it every couple of years, unless you use something like Butinol/Butinox which will last 5-8 years between coats (downside is they have very staid colours).
