So I'm colouring a map of Canada and I need help with the colours.?

I already used the colours red orange yellow blue-green. light green, dark green, pink, red orange, brown, purple and black. I can't use blue/dark blue as those will be the lakes and the oceans. Any suggestions as to what colours I use?


I have to colour it completely, no white spots.

    Brown, chartreuse (yellow-green), magenta, and lavender. Be SURE you include a legend AND a north arrow. North does NOT have to be at the top. The fastest way to get an F on a mapping or cartography assignment is to forget the north (or south) arrow.

    Why not use the same colours repeatedly. That's how ALL maps are coloured.

    If you son’t have enough colors, you need to switch to patterns, such as red and blue stripes, gray crosshatch, or intensities of the same color, such as orange and peach, or purple and lavender.

    Why not leave it blank or color it white.
