Bob has two ways of making structures. One is to scratch out a basic shape using the pallet knife, and the other is to just paint over what is currently on the canvas. Somehow he seems to make that work, but I have found when I try to paint a structure over background paint, it just turns into a muddy mess. Scratching out the shape of the structure with the pallet knife removes all that excess paint and makes it a lot easier to paint the building. It also gives you a sense of what the building will look like before you commit to putting paint on canvas. Just putting in my two cents.
