    Default Groupong with Previous/Painting in selection?

    I am following a chapter in Adobe Photoshop Classroom in a Book lesson 8 painting and editing.

    At one point the book has me create a new layer and group it with the previous.

    1.When creating a new layer and grouping it with the previous layer, why is it that as you paint you do not have to worry about painting outside the tree area (becuase it is protected as the book specifies)?

    2.What is the difference between doing it this way and just making a selection to paint so that you do not worry about painting outside an area, and painting on a new blank layer within the selection?

    Thanks!

    previous. 
    is it that as you paint you do not have to worry about painting outside the
    tree area (becuase it is protected as the book specifies)?

    In a layer clipping group the bottom most layer acts as a mask for the
    layer(s) above it (top layer is indented in the layers palette). Or, in
    other words, the top layer is masked by the bottom layer. So if you paint on
    the top most layer, you'll only see the strokes that are made within the
    content of the bottom layer.
     
    selection to paint so that you do not worry about painting outside an area,
    and painting on a new blank layer within the selection? 

    You don't have to worry about making/saving the selection.

    1) Because you made a clipping group - as the book specifies.

    2) It remains editable, movable, etc.
