#3f486d 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

#3f486d background

I paint for myself. I don't know how to do anything else, anyway. Also I have to earn my living, and occupy myself.

Francis Bacon
