If it is latex or acrylic paint, try using water and a wire brush. Try this in early morning or evening when asphalt is not hot and sticky.

The roof is hot during the day and any paint that gets on it dries instantly. It is next to impossible to get off. Hot solvents like laquer thinner will eat the tar product in comp shingle or hot mop roofs. The easy fix is paint over it with something that matches the roof color.
