#b23e3b foreground

It is not the language of painters but the language of nature which one should listen to, the feeling for the things themselves, for reality, is more important than the feeling for pictures.

Vincent Van Gogh
<p style="color: #b23e3b">…</p>

#b23e3b background

No great artist ever sees things as they really are. If he did, he would cease to be an artist.

Oscar Wilde

#b23e3b 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.
