#969a98 foreground

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="color: #969a98">…</p>

#969a98 background

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

Lucian Freud
<p style="background-color: #969a98">…</p>

#969a98 shadow

Don't be an art critic, but paint, there lies salvation.

Paul Cezanne
