#a7cae4 HTML / CSS Code Examples

#a7cae4 foreground

The main thing is to be moved, to love, to hope, to tremble, to live.

Auguste Rodin
<p style="color: #a7cae4">…</p>

#a7cae4 background

To practice any art, no matter how well or badly, is a way to make your soul grow. So do it.

Kurt Vonnegut
<p style="background-color: #a7cae4">…</p>

#a7cae4 shadow

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.
