Coloring

You can fill the inside of an open or closed object with a solid color, a gradient (a smooth gradation of two or more colors), or a pattern of repeating tiles. Patterns and gradients can be produced right in Illustrator. If you have a painter's touch, you'll enjoy using Illustrator's gradient mesh features, which create multicolored, editable gradient mesh objects. As for an object's contour, you can apply a solid color stroke to the edge of any object in a plain or dashed style.

A stroke or fill color can be from a matching system, like PANTONE, or it can be a CMYK, HSB, or RGB color that you mix yourself. In Illustrator, you can mix, apply, and save colors in either RGB or CMYK Color mode (not both). This means that each color will be consistent for its model—whether it's a CMYK color being color managed for color separation or a Web-safe RGB color chosen for display in a browser.
