To turn a photo into black and white and paint back in a touch of color:

Open a color photograph (File > Open).

Click on the black and white circle at the top of the Layers palette and choose Hue/Saturation from the menu.
When the dialog box comes up, drag the Saturation slider all the way to the left to turn your photo into black and white. Click okay.
Select the Brush tool, and choose a brush from the Brush Picker menu in the Options Bar. Make sure the Opacity in the Options Bar is 100%
Make sure the Foreground Color Chip is black. If it isn't, press the letter "D" to get the default colors of black and white.
Paint on your photo wherever you want to see color.
To paint away color, press the letter "X" to switch the Foreground color to white. Painting with white reveals the black and white adjustment layer.
You can also reduce the opacity of the brush in the Options Bar to get a partial painted effect.
