The best part about the Painted World is you don't even have to fight the boss. lol She even tells you you can leave. I'm big time into the lore of the game and I love that level for it. I never fight her. She's fairly simple from what I've seen though.
You can literally get from the start of the level to the boss in about two minutes if you know the short cuts... and since you don't have to fight the boss you can just jet out of there if you don't like it. But I love to explore every level. The only level I rushed in my first playthrough was Blighttown because I hated it so much. I explored every inch of that place this time though.
Here's a tip with the Painted World. After you beat the dragon you can run across the bridge to his lower half and attack it with a strong power jump attack and the body stands up and you can get under it without having to work your way down and unlock the door. Just a little tip to help those that wanna get out of the level quicker.
EDIT: Also I'm pretty sure you can warp from the bonfire in the Painted World as long as you have the lord vessel
