#969ad6 HTML / CSS Code Examples

#969ad6 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

#969ad6 shadow

It took me four years to paint like Raphael, but a lifetime to paint like a child.
