Fills and Strokes

Illustrator wouldn't be incredibly useful if it were capable of creating only shapes with white fills and black strokes. It's time to splash a bit of color on the topic of applying fills and strokes to objects in Illustrator.

You can specify colors for selected objects in Illustrator by using the Color palette. When expanded fully, the Color palette contains a fill and stroke indicator, color sliders, and a color ramp (see Figure 7.67). To specify a color for the fill of an object, you have to click on the fill indicator first. Likewise, to specify a color for the stroke of an object, click on the stroke indicator.
