4. Fill Your Shapes with Colors

Playback Speed:

In this video, you will fill your shapes that you outlined in your photo with colors.

Now that you have outlined the shapes in your photo, you can transform it into pop art!

While pop artists of the pop art movement often used primary colors in their work, you can choose whatever colors you like to create your own work of art.

You might want to use colors that are similar to the actual photograph.

Or you might want to use a lot of different colors to make your art really unique!

To begin, select one of the shapes that you outlined.

You might start with the largest shape.

The largest shape will probably be the one that people notice first, so you may want to start there when creating your color palette.

Then, choose a fill color for your first shape.

Continue filling your shapes with colors.

Use different colors for shapes that border each other so they appear as separate shapes.

You can use bright primary colors like pop artists often do, you can form a pattern with your colors, or use different colors for each shape.

When you have filled all of your shapes, look closely at your pop art image.

You can change any colors that you don't like or adjust bordering colors that don't match well.

Now, it's your turn: select your shapes, and fill your shapes with different colors.
