Damien Hirst Spot Paintings

I've always been a fan of Damien Hirst. Recreating his spot paintings for the web is my way of creating "master copies" and practicing my HTML and CSS skills. I am only using colors from the extended color keywords list above.


CSS Extended Color Keywords

While learning CSS, I discovered the 147 extended color keywords and wanted to display them in a prettier way than HTML tables. I'm currently obsessed with circles, layering, and transparency, so I incorporated these aspects into my simple design.
