Chapter 5. Color and Painting > Saving a Graphic Style

Saving a Graphic Style

Anytime you invest time-consuming decisions in painting objects that you think you might want to use again, you should save them as Graphic Styles. For example, you may want to apply the same color attributes to the cloud next to it. Choose Window > Graphic Styles before starting this part of the lesson. You can learn more about Graphic Styles in Lesson 11, “Applying Appearance Attributes, Graphic Styles, and Effects.”

1.
Select the cloud that you applied the brush stroke to.

2.
From the Graphic Styles palette menu, choose New Graphic Style.

3.
In the Graphic Styles Options window, enter the name Cloud, press OK.

The Cloud Graphic Style is added to the end of the Graphic Style palette.

4.
Select the other cloud, and choose the Cloud Graphic Style on the Graphic Styles palette. The same attributes are now applied to the second cloud.

Congratulations! You have completed the lesson portion of this exercise. Read “Exploring on your own” to gain some additional practice in applying painting and coloring attributes.
