I feel like canvas flipping doesn't get talked about a lot in the art community, especially with beginning artists who are just now venturing into digital art. What is canvas flipping and why do it? Canvas flipping is inverting your canvas so you can see any mistakes that you might not have noticed otherwise. How often do you guys flip your canvas? Has it helped you? I try to flip my canvas quite often. I never did for a good few years because I was just starting out and not really big into the art community. But it definitely has helped my art a lot.
