Check the opacity and the flow. If those are both at 100%, check the opacity and mode of the layer you are working on. Make sure that the opacity for the layer is 100%, and the mode is Normal.

  1. make sure the brush opacity is at 100%. if that doesnt work then be sure the layer is 100% too

  2. Check the transparency. If you want solid it should be set at 100%. If you are using a newer version of Photoshop, it should be on the bar across the top of the image. Also might want to check the transparency on the colors palate.
