Paseo Del Encanto
About this artwork
Artist Jamal Sultan displays an empty alley with box-shaped architecture and a tonal atmosphere. He paints the two houses seen from the street with a pencil drawing and primes it with clear acrylic gel. Successive translucent coats of oil thinned down with fast-drying alkyd medium reveal each new layer beneath. This process gives the work a particular luminosity that undiluted paint can't achieve.
