Glazing is a great technique for getting crisp clean detail.

For instance, in the above painting, the iris is done mostly with washes or glazes of color.

This made it the focal point since it kept it crisp with sharper lines and more detail.

The background is done wet-in-wet to create a softer look and to separate it from the focal point.
