Ok, here is the PHOTOGRAPH.
I will see what i can do, but I really need to calm down another couple days or so first to start. I did do just the outline of things but that's all.

As you can see, the cloud of smoke will be more of a challenge than the derigible will be. I'm left handed, so I'm going to try and do the derigible first, then more over to the smoke (i don't want to smude any subtlties if i did it first).
lI want to rough in with a stick of charcoal the sky, and land to make the drawing look old too. Might try a cotton puff and dip it in some charcoal dust (first wiping it slightlly on some paper to get rid of excess).
I always sound like i have such a good plan for everything, but I rarely follow up with any of them!
Not alot of real details in this one, so I hope something emerges well out of it. It can be decievingly simple at first.
I will NOT be drawing a marathon on this one this time either.

Thinking about it, I'm more of a sculpture than a drawer or painter....I'd rather wittle away something slowly and deliberately than to swish the brush or pencil as an artist would do. So, a sculpture cannot do an impressionism sculpture.  This means..i HAVE to select the right subject from now on.

The moment you find yourself mostly satisfied with a painting and think you'll "just quickly" do this or that, that's the moment to stop completely. Take the painting off your easel and put it aside for at least 24 hours, then reassess whether it really needs that tweak.
