May I ask which paper do you use ? :-?

Sure. I use different papers for different effects. This one is an American one made by Strathmore. It is called Toned Gray and comes in a book of 24 sheets. The size I use is 11" x 14". Of course , you could use any pencils, but I use a little selection of gray tones, as well as white and black. I order the paper on Amazon, and it comes from U.S.A. , but it comes fairly quickly. If you send me your address privately through Stars Portraits, I could send you a couple of sheets to try. :thumbup: :thumbup: :thumbup:

Thank you very much for the tip. Just wanted to do a bit of benchmarking :grin: it is so kind of you, but for now I have to work on Pastelmat to get the best out of it. Then I will go back to the pencils :ok: :blowkiss:

It is maybe just a story, but I remember reading that a reporter once said that he (John) should be more serious about World Peace. Instead of the silly pranks he got up to with Yoko. e.g. lying in bed "for peace" or the two of them in a sack and other gimmicks. John said " No way , the serious people ( Martin Luther King, , J.F.K. etc) get shot !"

Unfortunatelly he is dead too with shot...World is mad. Why shot someone who just wants peace???I never understood these murders. There is no-sense for me about it. Thanks Tom to have honor him as you do. Love tribute. :blowkiss: :blowkiss: :blowkiss: :blowkiss: :thumbup: :thumbup: :thumbup: :clap: :clap: :clap:

Of course I may be wrong, but I think the person who shot John, thought it would make him famous as "the man who shot John Lennon" : which is why I wouldn't mention his name ( if I could remember it ) :hi: but not many people will forget John :grin: :grin: :grin: :grin:

It was a silly murder act. But in fact, so many murder are without sense. I have forgotten John's murderer name. I prefer to remember John and beautiful songs. It's better for peace and art, and love, no? Have a good day, Tom, and thank you very much. :hug: :hug: :hug:

We were mentioning forgotten actors (Cary Grant ) but maybe musicians have a better chance. I'm sure John's music will be long remembered :thumbup: :thumbup: :thumbup: :thumbup: :thumbup: :thumbup:
