Painting Process: The Loss of Virginity

I have had a request to show process shots of one of my paintings, so OK, Terrell Thornhill- here they are.
The Loss of Virginity
oil on canvas
36" x 48"
The whole thing was done in 3-4 layers of  working over a white background. I have no idea why these 1st 2 working images came out so lousy.
Step one- background and roughed in tiles. My black is a combo of Windsor Newton prussian blue and WN blue-black
don't know why this image is soooo bad. 1st rough in of one of the models
middle working- pomegranate is done, melon needs refinement, nagaimo needs refinement and creepy root hair
