# Draw Color Filled Shapes in Turtle – Python

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 pent = turtle.Turtle()  # taking input for the side of the squares = int(input("Enter the length of the side of the square: "))  # taking the input for the colorcol = input("Enter the color name or hex value of color(# RRGGBB): ")  # set the fillcolort.fillcolor(col)  # start the filling colort.begin_fill()  # drawing the square of side sfor _ in range(4):  t.forward(s)  t.right(90)  # ending the filling of the colort.end_fill()

Input :

200
green

Output :

## Drawing Color Filled Triangle:

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

Input :

200
red

## Drawing Color Filled Hexagon:

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

Input :

100
#113300

Output :

## Drawing Color Filled Star:

 # draw color filled star in turtle  import turtle  # creating turtle pent = turtle.Turtle()  # taking input for the side of the stars = int(input("Enter the length of the side of the star: "))  # taking the input for the colorcol = input("Enter the color name or hex value of color(# RRGGBB): ")  # set the fillcolort.fillcolor(col)  # start the filling colort.begin_fill()  # drawing the star of side sfor _ in range(5):  t.forward(s)  t.right(144)  # ending the filling of colort.end_fill()

Input :

200
#551122

Output :

## Drawing Color Filled Circle:

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