Definately not "worthless"! anytime you're painting is good. I just find that when you from life or a photo , it teaches you to really look at the values and color. When you apint over, you're constantly eye dropping the colors underneath, thus not really making you look and analize the values that are there. But again , any practise is better than no practise!
