Blending in Photoshop

Is there a way to blend colors in Photoshop similar to the way that they are blended in Painter? I know that there is color dynamics in PS 7, but I haven't had any luck getting that to do what I'm after-- which is to blend my foreground color with the color in the working space. Thanks for any help you have to offer.

i don't think photoshop has a way to 'mix' colors together ie painting yellow over blue won't create green (except in some blending modes) but you can't paint as you physically do (ie smudging a blue portion in a yellow one won't give green in PS)

I would suggest different blending modes too, try overlay and some of the others, just test out with two layers with different colors and then make the top layer a different blending mode other than "normal." once you get the general look you want, i would suggest a "layer mask" between the two for more control.
