parts of the reference image goes missing when using the pen tool in illustrator

I placed a reference image in Illustrator that I want to trace. When I use the pen tool, some parts of the reference image go missing in the middle of the process. Why is this happening? What can I do to prevent it?


When you are drawing a path, just set the fill to none. The fill is covering the reference image. You can change it back afterwards.
