#006994 HTML / CSS Code Examples

#006994 foreground

It is not the language of painters but the language of nature which one should listen to, the feeling for the things themselves, for reality, is more important than the feeling for pictures.

Vincent Van Gogh
<p style="color: #006994">…</p>

#006994 background

The object of art is not to reproduce reality, but to create a reality of the same intensity.

Alberto Giacometti
