All Color values are wrapped in pyDraw as to make constructors and methods more clear. Colors are immutable, and can be created from names, RGB values, or a hex string.


You can create a Color by passing in one of three options:

  • Name (string from Tkinter dataset)

  • RGB (either a tuple or just three arguments, [0-255])

  • Hex (supports 3-char: '#fff' and 6-char: '#ffffff')

color = Color('red') # Get the red color
color = Color(255, 0, 0) # Create red from RGB
color = Color('#ff0000') # Create red from hex

Retrieving Values

The RGB values are available no matter how the Color was initialized: # Retrieve the red value (0-255) # Retrieve the green value (0-255) # Retrieve the blue value (0-255)
color.rgb() # Retrieve a tuple of all three color values # If initialized with a name, it is available
color.hex() # If initialized with a hex, it is available

Random Color and All Colors

You can retrieve a random Color via:


Or you can generate it yourself by retrieving the full list of (named) Colors:


Note that these are static methods and are called on the Color class, rather than an instance.
