#b9bddb HTML / CSS Code Examples

#b9bddb foreground

A painting is never finished - it simply stops in interesting places.

Paul Gardner
<p style="color: #b9bddb">…</p>

#b9bddb background

The holy grail is to spend less time making the picture than it takes people to look at it.

Banksy
<p style="background-color: #b9bddb">…</p>

#b9bddb 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.

Mark Rothko
