LR adj brush (exposure) blotchy...what am I doing wrong?

When I go to lighten an area in LR 4.2 (or any previous version) with the adjustment brush, I'm left with blotchy results seemingly no matter how I set my flow and density.  Other brush adjustments don't seem to leave speckles of unadjusted background, nor do exposure gradients.  What am I doing wrong?
