#ababaf HTML / CSS Code Examples

#ababaf foreground

The object isn't to make art, it's to be in that wonderful state which makes art inevitable.

Robert Henri
<p style="color: #ababaf">…</p>

#ababaf 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
<p style="background-color: #ababaf">…</p>

#ababaf shadow

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
