When it comes to the local colour, I know that I will have to let it be reduced by a certain amount, by the blast of light from the sun. The shadows around the rocks need to be quite dark in contrast, and rather purple in colour. Where the sun hits the cliffs and glances off the edges of things, I put in yellow and gold streaks. Finally I redefine any other element that needs strengthening.

Now it's your turn. Remember the drama and let your colour shout.
