#b4b8cf HTML / CSS Code Examples

#b4b8cf foreground

An artist never really finishes his work; he merely abandons it.

Paul Valéry
<p style="color: #b4b8cf">…</p>

#b4b8cf background

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="background-color: #b4b8cf">…</p>

#b4b8cf shadow

The greater the artist, the greater the doubt. Perfect confidence is granted to the less talented as a consolation prize.

Robert Hughes
