#bdbdbd HTML / CSS Code Examples

#bdbdbd foreground

I dream of painting and then I paint my dream.

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

#bdbdbd background

The greater the artist, the greater the doubt. Perfect confidence is granted to the less talented as a consolation prize.

Robert Hughes

#bdbdbd 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.
