If I create from the heart, nearly everything works; if from the head, almost nothing.

Marc Chagall
<p style="color: #2a4b6e">…</p>

#2a4b6e background

Lucian Freud
<p style="background-color: #2a4b6e">…</p>

#2a4b6e 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.
