Default Can You Paint over roof tar

Hi, a very large area of our roof leaked several years ago and is now covered with tar. The more that I look at it, the more I hate how bad it looks. It looks like half of the roof is black and the other half is green. The roof is like a fiber material that looks like tin but it's not. Is it possible to paint a rustolium type spray paint that matches the green over the tar?

Thanks for any suggestions

Perhaps you could look at the paint they use for painting on the streets.
