Darken the leftmost pillar with more Neutral Tint, ignoring the tree that covers that area. Mix in Mineral Violet, then add a layer to the archway before deepening the shadows and lines in the same area.

Mix Olive Green with a touch of Mineral and Carbazole Violet, and drop into the purple-tinted shadows wet-in-wet. The paint will mix on paper, producing a softer transition in color. You can also touch in some Burnt Sienna to warm up the tone. With this burgundy mixture, paint the railings along the balcony as well, and add more details along the bottom of the buildings.
