Painted bare plaster with vinyl matt too early?

Hi - had a plasterer PVA and skim plaster over previously polytexed walls and ceiling. He said wait a week till the plaster is dry before painting. Have waited 10 days till plaster looked pink and dry and painted using Dulux Vinyl Matt thinning first coat with water in line with recommendations on the tin.

The last area of the plaster to dry - at the boundary between wall and ceiling on one of the walls looks darker than the rest after painting with the initial thinned coat and a subsequent second coat.

Will this dry over time to the same colour as the rest? Or have I painted too early? If so, what do I do?

Thanks in advance for any help.
