[Tex/LaTex] Geometry Drawings: Coloring Arcs


I need to color in arc BC red and make my points D and C darker. Does anyone know how to do this?

\begin{tikzpicture}[line cap=round,line join=round,>=triangle 45,x=1.0cm,y=1.0cm]
\clip(-4.3,-5.28) rectangle (22.8,6.3);
\draw(2.64,1.26) circle (3.73cm);
\draw [color=ttqqqq] (0.28,-1.63)-- (6.26,2.16);
\draw [color=qqttzz] (2.64,1.26)-- (0.28,-1.63);
\draw (2.16,4.96)-- (0.28,-1.63);
\draw [color=qqttzz] (2.64,1.26)-- (2.16,4.96);
\draw [color=qqttzz] (2.64,1.26)-- (6.26,2.16);
\fill [color=qqqqff] (2.64,1.26) circle (1.5pt);
\draw[color=qqqqff] (2.78,1.54) node {$A$};
\fill [color=qqqqff] (2.16,4.96) circle (1.5pt);
\draw[color=qqqqff] (2.32,5.24) node {$B$};
\fill [color=xdxdff] (6.26,2.16) circle (1.5pt);
\draw[color=xdxdff] (6.42,2.44) node {$C$};
\fill [color=xdxdff] (0.28,-1.63) circle (1.5pt);
\draw[color=xdxdff] (0.44,-1.34) node {$D$};

 $\displaystyle\angle BDC = \frac{1}{2} \widehat{BC} $ 


Also how do I make midpoint hashmarks for segments BA, DA and AC?

I want my drawings to look something like this, but with midpoint hashmarks for the radii:

Basic figures like this are better drawn directly in tikz:

\begin{tikzpicture}[ultra thick, line cap=round,line join=round]
\coordinate (Origin) at (0,0);
\coordinate (A) at (\AAngle:\Radius);
\coordinate (B) at (\BAngle:\Radius);
\coordinate (C) at (\CAngle:\Radius);

\draw [black, thick] (Origin) circle[radius=\Radius];

\draw [brown] 
       (Origin)  node [left, black] {$O$}
    -- (B) node [right, black] {$B$}
    -- (A) node [below left, black] {$A$}
    -- (C) node [above, black] {$C$}
    -- cycle;

\path (Origin) -- (B) node [midway, sloped] {$\mid$};
\path (Origin) -- (C) node [midway, sloped] {$\mid$};

\draw [red] (Origin) ++ (B) arc[radius=\Radius,start angle=\BAngle,end angle=\CAngle];
