Selecting Color

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.
