Draw Color Filled Shapes in Turtle – Python
  • Difficulty Level : Basic
  • Last Updated : 10 Feb, 2020

Prerequisite: Python Turtle Basics

turtle is an inbuilt module in python. It provides drawing using a screen (cardboard) and turtle (pen). To draw something on the screen, we need to move the turtle. To move turtle, there are some functions i.e forward(), backward(), etc.

To fill the colors in the shapes drawn by turtle, turtle provides three functions –

fillcolor(): This helps to choose the color for filling the shape. It takes the input parameter as the color name or hex value of the color and fills the upcoming closed geographical objects with the chosen color. Color names are basic color names i.e. red, blue, green, orange.
The hex value of color is a string(starting with ‘#’) of hexadecimal numbers i.e. #RRGGBB. R, G, and B are the hexadecimal numbers (0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, A, B, C, D, E, F).

begin_fill(): This function tells turtle that all upcoming closed graphical objects needed to be filled by the chosen color.



end_fill(): this function tells turtle to stop the filling upcoming closed graphical objects.

Drawing Color Filled Square:




# draw color-filled square in turtle
  
import turtle
  
# creating turtle pen
t = turtle.Turtle()
  
# taking input for the side of the square
s = int(input("Enter the length of the side of the square: "))
  
# taking the input for the color
col = input("Enter the color name or hex value of color(# RRGGBB): ")
  
# set the fillcolor
t.fillcolor(col)
  
# start the filling color
t.begin_fill()
  
# drawing the square of side s
for _ in range(4):
  t.forward(s)
  t.right(90)
  
# ending the filling of the color
t.end_fill()

Input :

200
green

Output :

Drawing Color Filled Triangle:




# draw color filled triangle in turtle
  
import turtle
  
# creating turtle pen
t = turtle.Turtle()
  
# taking input for the side of the triangle
s = int(input("Enter the length of the side of the triangle: "))
  
# taking the input for the color
col = input("Enter the color name or hex value of color(# RRGGBB): ")
  
# set the fillcolor
t.fillcolor(col)
  
# start the filling color
t.begin_fill()
  
# drawing the triangle of side s
for _ in range(3):
  t.forward(s)
  t.right(-120)
  
# ending the filling of the color
t.end_fill()

Input :

200
red

Drawing Color Filled Hexagon:




# draw color-filled hexagon in turtle
  
import turtle
  
# creating turtle pen
t = turtle.Turtle()
  
# taking input for the side of the hexagon
s = int(input("Enter the length of the side of the hexagon: "))
  
# taking the input for the color
col = input("Enter the color name or hex value of color(# RRGGBB): ")
  
# set the fillcolor
t.fillcolor(col)
  
# start the filling color
t.begin_fill()
  
# drawing the hexagon of side s
for _ in range(6):
  t.forward(s)
  t.right(-60)
  
# ending the filling of the color
t.end_fill()

Input :

100
#113300

Output :

# taking input for the side of the star
s = int(input("Enter the length of the side of the star: "))
  
# taking the input for the color
col = input("Enter the color name or hex value of color(# RRGGBB): ")
  
# set the fillcolor
t.fillcolor(col)
  
# start the filling color
t.begin_fill()
  
# drawing the star of side s
for _ in range(5):
  t.forward(s)
  t.right(144)
  
# ending the filling of color
t.end_fill()

# draw color filled circle in turtle
  
import turtle
  
# creating turtle pen
t = turtle.Turtle()
  
# taking input for the radius of the circle
r = int(input("Enter the radius of the circle: "))
  
# taking the input for the color
col = input("Enter the color name or hex value of color(# RRGGBB): ")
  
# set the fillcolor
t.fillcolor(col)
  
# start the filling color
t.begin_fill()
  
# drawing the circle of radius r
t.circle(r)
  
# ending the filling of the color
t.end_fill()
