Plaza Las Palmas - Arrecife - Lanzarote, and the light from behind being a little tricky

It's always a bit tricky tackling a scene when there is bright light behind you.  Often you can have in front of you a scene where many things are the same values or tones, making it a challenge with watercolour.  So I needed in this scene to add in some lights against the darks as in the figure against the dark trees or the white car with partial shadow.
