Until you switch the layer's blend mode, you'll just have the solid color from the first. Since you usually paint close to where you picked the color, you usually won't notice it, but it might come back to bite you later.One tip that I really love is to use selective brightening and darkening of areas (aka dodge & burn although I don't use the tools themselves as they – again – don't work on blank layers). For this I usually use a new layer in Soft Light mode (optionally filled with 50 % gray, doesn't make a difference) and paint with black to darken and white to brighten areas. Takes some getting used to, but sometimes it works better than plain cloning or healing which often needs further adjustment anyways.
