#38394b HTML / CSS Code Examples

#38394b foreground

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

Lucian Freud
<p style="color: #38394b">…</p>

#38394b 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
<p style="background-color: #38394b">…</p>

#38394b shadow

Great things are done by a series of small things brought together.

Vincent Van Gogh
