You will need to get a copy of the association covenants or bylaws. Those documents will spell out exactly what the HOA can and cannot do. It will say in those documents if the HOA has the right to enter your property and do the painting, and upon what terms. In order to give yourself added protection, you should make sure that you have copies of letters and documents you have sent the board stating that you do not consent with the color choice and you object to your home being painted the dark brown color.
