So when I paint an image I always have a black layer on top set to color mode so i can check the values of my image - what i want to know is weather i can select the colours of the image while the black colour layer is still on - as it becomes annoying to switch that layer off then select a colour, then switch the black colour layer back on.

I may not understand your problem fully, could you post screenshots including all pertinent Panels to illustrate? 

What are the Eyedropper Tool’s settings? 
Might »All Layers« provide the reading you are after?
