#b5bde0 HTML / CSS Code Examples

#b5bde0 foreground

If I were called upon to define briefly the word Art, I should call it the reproduction of what the senses preceive in nature, seen through the veil of the soul.

Paul Cezanne
<p style="color: #b5bde0">…</p>

#b5bde0 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: #b5bde0">…</p>

#b5bde0 shadow

Don't think about making art, just get it done. Let everyone else decide if it's good or bad, whether they love it or hate it. While they are deciding, make even more art.

Andy Warhol
