#a8b5de HTML / CSS Code Examples

#a8b5de foreground

If I were called upon to define briefly the word Art, I should call it the reproduction of what the senses preceive in nature, seen through the veil of the soul.

Paul Cezanne
<p style="color: #a8b5de">…</p>

#a8b5de background

The artist is a receptacle for emotions that come from all over the place: from the sky, from the earth, from a scrap of paper, from a passing shape, from a spider's web.

Pablo Picasso
<p style="background-color: #a8b5de">…</p>

#a8b5de shadow

To be an artist is to believe in life.

Henry Moore
