#055b9f foreground

It took me four years to paint like Raphael, but a lifetime to paint like a child.

Pablo Picasso
<p style="color: #055b9f">…</p>

#055b9f background

It is a widely accepted notion among painters that it does not matter what one paints as long as it is well painted. This is the essence of academicism. There is no such thing as good painting about nothing.

Mark Rothko

#055b9f shadow

One can have no smaller or greater mastery than mastery of oneself.

Leonardo da Vinci
