#05bacc foreground

The longer you look at an object, the more abstract it becomes, and, ironically, the more real.

Lucian Freud
<p style="color: #05bacc">…</p>

#05bacc background

I am seeking. I am striving. I am in it with all my heart.

Vincent van Gogh
<p style="background-color: #05bacc">…</p>

#05bacc shadow

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
