Selecting Color

By Justin Buus

This tutorial will get you started with color selection, which is an important part of any painting project. There are 3 methods of color picking that you can use:

  • the Color Wheel, which allows you to adjust sliders to select the colors you want and choose color harmonies;
  • the Color Set Libraries, which allow you to use the existing libraries or create your own color sets with your favorite colors or specific colors for a certain project; and
  • the Color Mixer, which allows you to add selected colors to the palette and see how they mix together.

Thanks for watching! We hope you found this tutorial helpful and we would love to hear your feedback in the Comments section below. And don’t forget to visit our social media pages and show us what you’ve learned by sharing your photos, videos and creative projects with us.
