Is there a way to turn off the overlaying dark part when you paint? I have a habit of doing multiple strokes and this is overlaying darkness thing is not helping.
You can't unless working with 100% opacity brushes.
This is how Photoshop works.
Also, try turning off "Shape Dynamics" and setting the spacing to something like 9%.
Then when you're painting, leave the opacity at 100%. You can play with the flow setting, start it at 100%, some like to change it down to 30 - 70% as they paint depending on how soft or thick they want to lay down their colors/values, it's up to you, just play around with it and see what you like.
Apply these settings to a hard round brush to get the control I think you are looking for.
