#b5aec1 HTML / CSS Code Examples

#b5aec1 foreground

An artist cannot fail; it is a success to be one.

Charles Horton Cooley
<p style="color: #b5aec1">…</p>

#b5aec1 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: #b5aec1">…</p>

#b5aec1 shadow

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="text-shadow: 0.1em 0.1em 0.15em #b5aec1">…</p>
