How do I fill my vector file with color?


Question

First of all, I'm sorry if this has been asked before but I've been searching and trying for the past 2 hours without any luck. I'm only getting started with Illustrator, so forgive me if this is a stupid question.

I purchased this file and am trying to colorise it (fill it with color).

I found how to change the border color of it, but I can't find a way to fill the actual inside of the image. I found a way but it's extremely complicated ..if I change the background image of the entire file and move it behind, so I assume the background that I am trying to fill is currently transparent.

How would I do this? I'm totally lost :(

You can try using the live paint tool.

Choose the Live Paint Bucket tool

Fill with your selected color

You can later expand the object if you need to edit it further.
