I'll see you after an hour so you may continue to paint your wall.
I'll see you after an hour so you may continue painting your wall.
Is there any difference?
You can use either the infinitive or the gerund as the object.
This is what I would say:
I'll leave you now for an hour, so you may continue painting (to paint) your wall.

I'll see you after an hour/ I'll see you an hour------------are they just grammatically wrong and sound weird to you?
Sorry I overlooked that.

I'll see you in an hour. You may continue painting your wall.
I will return after an hour. In the meantime, please continue painting the wall.
I will leave so that you can continue painting your wall. I'll see you in an hour.
The reason that I am leaving for an hour is so that you can continue your painting.
Anonymous:You can use both paint and painting here. I would use painting.
However, I'd say this sentence as following:
I'll see you in / within an hour, while you may be continuing to paint your wall.
People are waiting to help.
