The Color Puck in Sketchbook Pro for desktop

If the puck is not visible you can access it by selecting Window > Color Puck.

Drag within the puck to change luminance and saturation. 

To change the active color, tap the center of the puck. This opens the mini Color Wheel and Color Picker. It also provides access to Transparent Color, as well as a mini color and gradient (if Flood Fill is selected) palettes. 

Drag the active color down into the palette to add it. Note that this palette is separate from the palettes available in the Custom Colors‍ window.
