Is it usual to paint Capa Fino, as it has dried it is very white.

I would. True it dries white but we found our end wall looked good initially but faded to a grubby colour and also showed patches after rain even though it is described as waterproof. We put off painting as it was awkward access.

It's a wall replacing a dead pine hedge, looks very white at the moment.

When/if it starts to look grubby then paint it.
Otherwise, relax and enjoy life.

I painted ours eventually. Our kitchen was plastered in it but it did shed its gritty surface a little so painting helped stabilise it, and our gate posts were painted after about a year only because the rest of the house is yellow and we wanted them to match. I would say, no hurry for now, as Gerry says.
