#bdbcab HTML / CSS Code Examples

#bdbcab foreground

As practice makes perfect, I cannot but make progress; each drawing one makes, each study one paints, is a step forward.

Vincent van Gogh
<p style="color: #bdbcab">…</p>

#bdbcab background

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

#bdbcab shadow

I paint for myself. I don't know how to do anything else, anyway. Also I have to earn my living, and occupy myself.

Francis Bacon
<p style="text-shadow: 0.1em 0.1em 0.15em #bdbcab">…</p>
