Xdreamer79 -- Thanks for the link.

So, are palette knives exclusive to oil painting? What (in traditional painting) is the benefit of using a palette knife instead of a brush?

Thanks for your responses so far everyone. :D

Yes, traditional art. Can be used with oil and acrylic. No real benefit, it's a
matter of style.

I see. One more question: Is there a proper "left-handed/right-handed" angle to a palette knife in photoshop? I see different tutorials using different angles.

Nothing's proper in Photoshop, just experiment and have fun.

Well pallette knives are generally used with oils because of the fact that oils are very dry paints are are much harder to mix with a brush.
Also, with pallette knives, you can get some really nice effects when you apply the paint to the canvas.

Bob Ross is usually a really easy example to show for this, but it seems like all his videos have been pulled from the public domain... All i can find now is weird spoofs...
Anyway, i found this one on stage 6 that shows him using a pallette knife. He was famous for his pallette knife mountains and unfortunately this one doesnt show that, but it should give you some idea...

The pallette knife techniques comes into play at about 13:00 minutes in. If you've never seen Bob Ross before you are in for a real treat too!! ;)

Ah ok... is that a recent thing then, coz Bob Ross did in 1995, but right up until late last year ive been able to get loads of Bob Ross vids on youtube...
Maybe they just had a clamp down...

Dang. For a while those youtube Bob Ross videos kept me sane at work.

I would buy them if they sold them on itunes.

I am going to buy some anyway but I think there's a greater incentive to buy a digital download.
