The Evolution of Sludge ... or ... Why I Don't like Painting Landscapes

The reference photo was a lovely, brooding, foggy scene of Verona by the old Roman bridge. I have tried to maintain the misty look. I am using suitably subdued mixtures of aureolin, brown madder and indanthrone blue.

This is as far as I'll probably go with this painting. I could darken the bridge, and lift some spots to be more precise about the reflections but the latest pair of shoes is grabbing my attention.
