#6b6c70 HTML / CSS Code Examples

#6b6c70 foreground

The object of art is not to reproduce reality, but to create a reality of the same intensity.

Alberto Giacometti
<p style="color: #6b6c70">…</p>

#6b6c70 background

Painting is just another way of keeping a diary.

Pablo Picasso
<p style="background-color: #6b6c70">…</p>

#6b6c70 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.
