I had arrived in Altea and was stunned by the medieval architecture of the Old Town area.  This is my first painting of the arch of the portal into the village.  The light here is unbelievably clear and filled with sparkling particles of mist from the Mediterranean Sea. I loved the transparency and tried to capture that in this painting.
