#a8afce foreground

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

Lucian Freud

#a8afce background

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

#a8afce shadow

There is no must in art because art is free.
