Learn to draw a monochrome landscape using pens and black ink. Follow this link to watch the time-lapse video of making of this sketch.
Understanding values (dark, light and mid tones) is extremely important when sketching/painting, even though the painting may be fully colored.
If you are sketching in monochrome, values help identify various elements from each other.
If you are sketching in colors, values lend a certain jazz, character and contrast to the sketch.

Get-Set-Sketch! Secrets of Pen and Ink Sketching Unleashed!
A few days ago, a student on mine asked me… “What are the rules of including/leaving out certain elements from a sketch/painting?”.
The answer is… “It depends!”.
And believe me, this is not a diplomatic answer. It completely depends on the sketcher. If I do two sketches at the same spot/using the same reference image, I may emphasize different elements altogether.
Have a look at this sketch above. I sketched this one today morning on location in a narrow lane in the old heritage part of the city where I live.
You may notice that the left side of the lane is highly emphasized while the right side is completely left blank, highlighted only by the blue signage.
The middle part, i.e. the road is also left blank, save some shadows. This give an illusion of bright light.
Would I do the same choices if I go there next time? Not necessarily!
