He is flipping the canvas as a way to "reset" his view on the image because when you look at the image you draw for too long you start to miss the obvious errors on it, so flipping the canvas forces the mind to take in the details again :)

Wow, great tutorial! I've used Photoshop for years and never put this combination together. It really is like painting with fire, how great! Thanks for putting this up here. I'll also echo AssassiN DUDE's question, how and why were you flipping your canvas? I'm guessing it's a keyboard shortcut, but what was your intent? Is it just to get a different angle while you paint? Thanks again, Justin
