#bbbb9f HTML / CSS Code Examples

#bbbb9f foreground

I want to touch people with my art. I want them to say 'he feels deeply, he feels tenderly.'.

Vincent Van Gogh
<p style="color: #bbbb9f">…</p>

#bbbb9f background

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
<p style="background-color: #bbbb9f">…</p>

#bbbb9f shadow

The aim of art is to represent not the outward appearance of things, but their inward significance.

Aristotle
