12    Options for Filling Objects

A shape without a fill on your drawing page is like a brand-new coloring book. To make a coloring book—and your CorelDRAW artwork—more complete, you need to fill your shapes with colors and textures.

In computer graphics, you have over 16 million solid shades of color at your disposal; imagine what you can do with blends, patterns, and textures of colors!

The best part, as you explore filling shapes in this chapter, is that it’s very difficult to color outside of the lines.
