At this point, you should be ready to add some smaller details, like some darker green trees along the horizon line. Soften the edges to give them a more distant look though. Use saturated Naples Yellow again for details, especially to strengthen the yellow areas, and try to tidy up the overall look of your abstract cityscape as much as possible.

Use a more saturated Indigo for the darkest areas, such as the bottom left corner and in some of the buildings. You can also dot some details in, mixing your colors as needed. Don’t forget to add the green outlines that divide the different fields!
