#afb6cc HTML / CSS Code Examples

#afb6cc foreground

As practice makes perfect, I cannot but make progress; each drawing one makes, each study one paints, is a step forward.

Vincent van Gogh
<p style="color: #afb6cc">…</p>

#afb6cc background

For me, painting is a way to forget life. It is a cry in the night, a strangled laugh.

Georges Rouault
<p style="background-color: #afb6cc">…</p>

#afb6cc 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.

Mark Rothko
