How to assign two sets of colors for two ParametricPlot? [closed]

I would like to use ParametricPlot twice and use Show to put them together:

p1 = ParametricPlot[
Evaluate@
Table[ReIm[r ( Cos[u] + I  Sin[u])], {r, Range[0.1, 0.9, .2]}],
{u, -Pi/2, 3 Pi/2},
PlotStyle -> Thick,
PlotRange -> 1.2,
AxesStyle -> Opacity[0.2],
ImageSize -> 300]

p2 = ParametricPlot[
Evaluate@
Table[ReIm[
r ( Cos[u] + I  Sin[u])], {u, {Pi/6, 3 Pi/4, 5 Pi/4, -Pi/4}}],
{r, 0.01, 0.9999},
PlotStyle -> {Thick},
PlotRange -> 1.2,
AxesStyle -> Opacity[0.1],
ImageSize -> 300]

One can see that the four colors in p2 are the same as the first four colors in p1. How can I make p2 with a set of colors different from that of p1?

One might manually choose different colors for lines in p2. I'm interested in a way that makes colors in p1 and p2 look as if they are from one ParametricPlot.

Use PlotStyle and ColorData to specify the color of the lines.

p1

PlotStyle -> Table[ColorData[97, i], {i, 1, 5}]

p2

PlotStyle -> Table[ColorData[97, i], {i, 6, 9}]

All together:

Show[
p1 = ParametricPlot[
Evaluate@
Table[ReIm[r (Cos[u] + I Sin[u])], {r, Range[0.1, 0.9, .2]}], {u, -Pi/2, 3 Pi/2},
PlotStyle -> Table[Directive[Thick, ColorData[97, i]], {i, 1, 5}],
PlotRange -> 1.2, AxesStyle -> Opacity[0.2], ImageSize -> 300],
p2 = ParametricPlot[
Evaluate@
Table[ReIm[r (Cos[u] + I Sin[u])], {u, {Pi/6, 3 Pi/4, 5 Pi/4, -Pi/4}}], {r, 0.01, 0.9999},
PlotStyle -> Table[Directive[Thick, ColorData[97, i]], {i, 6, 9}],
PlotRange -> 1.2, AxesStyle -> Opacity[0.1], ImageSize -> 300]
]
• Thanks. Is there something special about that 97? – Jack Sep 21 '17 at 1:29
• 97 is the default color palette used by Mathematica – Young Sep 21 '17 at 1:30

Thanks to @Young's answer, I see that it might be a better idea to use another color "scheme" for p2, so that the colors would look more different from those in p1:

p1 = ParametricPlot[
Evaluate@
Table[ReIm[r ( Cos[u] + I  Sin[u])], {r, Range[0.1, 0.9, .2]}],
{u, -Pi/2, 3 Pi/2},
PlotStyle ->
Table[Directive[Thickness[0.01], ColorData[97, i]], {i, 1, 5}],
PlotRange -> 1.2,
AxesStyle -> Opacity[0.2],
ImageSize -> 250]

p2 = ParametricPlot[
Evaluate@
Table[ReIm[
r ( Cos[u] + I  Sin[u])], {u, {Pi/6, 3 Pi/4, 5 Pi/4, -Pi/4}}],
{r, 0.01, 0.9999},
PlotStyle ->
Table[Directive[Thickness[0.01], ColorData[101, i]], {i, 6, 9}],
PlotRange -> 1.2,
AxesStyle -> Opacity[0.1],
ImageSize -> 250]
