How to change my brush color


I am a beginner.
I am not able to change my Brush or Paint Bucket color. Every thing is black.
I select a color but it seems to make no difference. It still paints everything black!

What is going on?!
Please somebody help!

Thank you,


Once you’ve selected your brush, keep it selected and click on any color of your choice in the color palette.

If you want to change the color of a particular stroke, just select that stroke and select the color you desire in the color (colour) palette.
