If you want a painted look on a fence I would use a solid stain, such as Cabot ProVT this way you will have the benefits of a stain, but a painted look, they have over 100 colors to choose from and it will also save you from having to prime the fence first, apply it with a brush, roller, or sprayer and apply 2 coats, its a waterbourne.
