So the Colors View is the one right here, and it's usually shown at the bottom of the tool properties panel. The arrow indicated besides the word color collapses and uncollapses this section, as well as this Swatch section, which can be collapsed and uncollapsed as well. The black rectangle right here is where you would see the selected color. So if I select red, you can see that the swatch now fills up with red. Over here, we have the color's opacity, which you can change by holding down the double arrow, which makes the slider appear and you can make adjustments using that slider, or you can click directly into the field and numerically change the value. You see that the current color swatch has been updated to show what the original color is and what the color is within your opacity value.

Next you have the Hue, Saturation and Value fields. So the hue actually gives you the color that you're looking for. The saturation lets you make it paler or more saturated, and the value takes you from dark to light. Once again, you can use the sliders on these actual colored bars, or you can use the up and down arrows at the end of each of these fields. Or once again, you can click directly in the field and type in a numerical value.

If there is a color that you find that you've been using a lot, one thing you can do from Swatch's list is add a new swatch. You can do that by clicking on this plus icon right here and add that swatch, including its current opacity to the Swatch library. You could also delete a swatch by having it selected. It might not be obvious, because of a black square around it. And you can easily delete that selection by clicking on this minus sign.
