finishing underpainting

I have finished the underpainting for my seabass painting. As you can see, I have applied color to the 24 x 36 inch panel. I have no grayscale underpainting that I am working from. I am working from photographs and the line drawing that I did earlier.
In the plate to the left, I changed the arrangement of the lemons. Instead of two lemons I decided that one peeled lemon might look more interesting. Willem Kalf (a Dutch painter) did a wonderful painting with a lobster and drinking horn. It has a little peeled lemon lying on the table; I have always wanted to do something similar. I thought the peeled lemon might compliment this seafood arrangement.
