Brush tool issues

I'm having problems with the brush tool. When painting on an empty the lair using colour blend mode the colours are not covering the layer underneath. Instead of the selected colour, I pressed the alt key in brush tool to get the eye dropper for colour selection, I get nothing. I'm trying to paint out lens flairs obscuring faces. It will paint the skin colur selected on the new empty layer, but the painted colour I'm adding is not covering the layer beneath. 

Any advice is much appreciated.

I cannot replicate the issue; painting with the Color blend mode on an empty layer above should work as intended. The only exception is if you're painting with the exact same color as the one below, in which case there would be no change or only minimal changes. That's my understanding.

 

Have you experimented with painting using the Normal blending mode?

Could you please post screenshots taken at View > 100% with the pertinent Panels (Toolbar, Layers, Options Bar, …) visible? 

 

Does the Layer have the Blend Mode »Color«? 

If so it would not affect the luminance of the underlying Layers.

Do you know that the Color blend mode has no affect when overlaying full black, or full white.

The demonstration below shows that a mid grey works best.

The image you included has issues that are not going to be easy to fix. Even an experienced retoucher would struggle to get that image looking good.

Thanks for all replies. Apologies for my own late response, I was only notified of any replies today!

Anyway this issue appears to be caused by interoperability with other software. I found that creating a stamp layer fixes the issue I experienced.
