Practicing Scenery

So I'm trying to figure things out. What my strengths and weaknesses are. Mostly focusing on trying to strengthen my weaknesses at the moment. And I've boiled it down to the fact that I need to get better at creating and drawing/painting scenery. Landscapes, Cityscapes, interior settings, and what have you. As of now I've completed just a few sketches of some outdoor settings, pictures that I found on the internet. After a few of these I'm going to start painting 1 or 2 of them because I certainly need some practice in that as well. I found for me that doing a bunch of gesture sketches of the human figure helped me understand the human figure a bit, and I tried to apply it in a sense to drawing scenery. I haven't gotten into the full gesture drawing, maybe I won't i don't know yet, but doing smaller sketches that include detail but not all of the tiny details helps to at least get a feel and understanding of how scenery is made up. Below are the rest of the sketches I have so far.
