    Question ...Make a brush that can overlap without showing what is underneath?

    Im new to photoshop and I am trying to get my mountain and forest brushes to overlap so that i dont have to go back and erase the parts that show through. In example1 you can see what my problem is. example2 shows what i want it to look like after i have gone through and erased all the parts of the trees that are behind the trees that are in front.

    My technique would be to start the forest by painting the trees in the back and overlap them as i paint towards the front of the forest. this would give the look in example2 with out having to go back through the entire forest and identify and erase the unwanted stuff.

    This is difficult to explain, but i hope you can understand what im trying to do. Does anyone know how to do this? perhaps i should be using something other than a brush? or maybe there is a setting somewhere?

    Thanks in advance!

    Im using CS2
