#bc8f8a HTML / CSS Code Examples

#bc8f8a foreground

For me, painting is a way to forget life. It is a cry in the night, a strangled laugh.

Georges Rouault

Life is the art of drawing without an eraser.

John W. Gardner

#bc8f8a 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.
