I thought you were given suggestions on the thread you posted a couple of days ago?

Be careful, apparently the temperatures are rising dramatically again next week. The paint will most probably set on the roller! It would be most successful done before about 9 am when it starts to heat up.

Did you try looking at The International shop? You can make enquiries through their website and they are very local to you.
Quesada colours, the other recommendation, are very helpful and knowledgable and you can ring them up to discuss your requirements.
How far do you want to travel?

It may only reach 30 degrees most days in the next few weeks,  but will feel much warmer and humid to anyone newly arrived in this region.    

We find our local paint shops very helpful.  They will mix any colour you want.   We get by with a few Spanish words,  and plenty of hand signals!!  Keep smiling... 

 Exterior Pintura will get you all kinds of options... massive buckets of the stuff.

We use Google to find everything...

Just type for example Pintura shops Torrevieja,  or La Marina 

Probably dozens will appear.  

Good luck,  keep drinking water.

Great if you want to keep painting, every time it rains, but otherwise not recommended.

The Spanish brand paint will last you a good few years and is in the main fade resistant, damp resistant and is easily washed or hosed down. You need a washable paint as the walls stain very easily due to all the dust in the atmosphere.  You’ll see what I mean the  next time we have red rain.

Have a look at the facebook page "Named and Shamed Costa Blanca"
There was a post about an hour ago with a picture of the paint pot with lots of the paint now washed off the wall.
I hope you haven't wasted your time.
