Murano Canalside Market

I'm not sure why I'm posting this-I am so not pleased with the way it turned out. It's from a photo I took of a produce market on a boat parked canalside on the island of Murano in the Venetian lagoon. I managed to take a cheerful sunlit scene and turn it into a murky mess! It's on a half sheet-15" x 22". I began the painting back in January, and it quickly became a mess, so I put it aside until last week, when I decided to bring it to some level of completion so I can move on.
