Talking Everything is green! (Monochrome Studies)

I did some value studies... since I dont have black, so I did it with Viridian Hue, a color that I dont use.. so everything ended up being green...



Here is how it look after being coverted to greyscale


Here is the ref photo.






So How did I do when come to value? any advice or correction?

The idea with the monochrome conversion I like -
the green is slightly "toxic", especially for food!

Re: Everything is green! (Monochrome Studies)

Your greyscale works but viridian is an unfortunate choice; toxic Ernst says - I agree! Generally, I think you still need to go stronger in values / contrast. Because the shape and shading of your bananas is less than perfect they have an uncanny resemblance to fingers with painted nails! Careful observation needed to get the shape, curves and shading convincing. However, you have made a good effort here. Keep at it ....but keep off viridian!
