Glazing is an amazing technique that can be used in Oils and Acrylics to create deeper and more translucent areas. Correct glazing can give you the feeling of looking through multiple layers of paint, as if looking through glass.

Unless you continue to experiment, you will become excellent at what you do, but stay in one place. Its good for any artist to be known for a specific style, but don’t let that be the only thing you do, Continue to experiment. Watch and study clips on youtube and google. Try different mediums. Mix them up and see what happens. You don’t know until try.

It's a dramatic effect - the texture and intense colours mean that these areas stand out.
