What am I missing? Color Picker Question

Recommended Posts

I'm going through the Elegance tutorial in the Affinity Photo Workbook. I've gotten to the part where we create a pixel layer for color, mark it as a color layer, and then choose the right color & paint it on.


I did that. The only problem I have is that while the color I chose was a peach and it shows as peach in the color picker, the color comes out as blue.


I figure I'm missing something, but can't figure out what. I've gone over the tutorial several times and can't see what I've missed. I'm hoping one of you can help point me in the right direction.

Well, this is a little bit confusing. In the picker the circle above is the "background" - in case of shapes and curves it is the stroke. Do not get confused from what is in the foreground, just the position tells which is fill and which is stroke. This much clearer in AD, the stroke is just a donaut and so , AP should do it too. So you could also recognize there is it a shape/curve or a pixel-layer.
