It could be that you need a layer to paint on, a new blank document has no layers.

By default, though, the Assistant will provide a pixel layer if one opens a New (empty) document in Photo and tries to paint on it.

@benrymnd: Perhaps you have the Protect Alpha option enabled in the Context Toolbar?
