#b5b5a1 foreground

It took me four years to paint like Raphael, but a lifetime to paint like a child.

Pablo Picasso
<p style="color: #b5b5a1">…</p>

#b5b5a1 background

The longer you look at an object, the more abstract it becomes, and, ironically, the more real.

Lucian Freud
<p style="background-color: #b5b5a1">…</p>

#b5b5a1 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.
