Color Inspiration from Mark Rothko

In the midst of procrastination from doing real work (at 2:30 am), I decided to find out the hexadecimal codes of the Mark Rothko's White Center (Yellow, Pink and Lavender on Rose)"(1950).

The artist probably took a freaking long time to mix paints to get the right shade that felt right to him.

50 years down the road, some lazy bugger like me copies his color scheme within seconds, using the eyedropper tool in Photoshop. But ooooh, look at that. Doesn't the purple text look great on the white background? Great for web design.
