I too have a Wacom tablet and have been messing around with the pressure and brush types.
Matter of fact here is a photo I just did last night using some of those techniques. I know they are not the best but they are in color. I like using the tablet when applying these type of effects.
Grahm, within CS have you messed around with Photo Filter? It has some presets, but you can also just filter by color.

Your photos look great!
I bought my Wacom tablet about 6 years ago, when I was taking some Photoshop classes, old enough that it plugs into a com-port instead of USB. I just downloaded updated drivers. I haven't thought about painting effects onto images, sounds like fun. I pretty much bought the Wacom to be able to accurately erase backgrounds from solar panel shots. Sort of product shot stuff.
Maybe someone should post a photo and we can all have fun tweaking it, and post our results.

I wasn't crazy about the result, so I went back and clicked on "more yellow" one more time. It still was too strong, so I desaturated it a bit. This is closer to the real thing than what I've gotten with the sepia filter. Graham, when I convert to B&W, I just go to Channel Mixer and click the monochrome box, then adjust the red, green and blue channels until I get what I want. Somebody here (I think it may have been Kargen, but I'm not sure) posted instructions a while back for doing that. Somewhere, I have a table that show which RGB ratios you can use to simulate various types of film. If I can find it, I'll post it.
