I have a rather complex illustration I live traced and am wondering if it is possible to colour in quicker than colouring each individual petal, like a click and drag over the image without colouring in the outlines?

    Ignore white when tracing, then simply put a color-filled object behind the black.

When tracing, tick the Ignore white option in the Image Trace Panel under the Advanced settings.

Then merely place a color-filled object behind your black trace.
