I only want to color in the 'out line' of the drop.

Hey there!

So, I have absolutely no idea what I'm doing. I'm learning as I go and have been looking at tutorials but I can't seem to figure this out.

I understand how to do a simple fill, but I only want to fill in the negative space between the inner and outer strokes of the water drop.

The stokes are on one layer and have been grouped.

Will you give a color for the inner part ?

the answer is probably boolean operation (difference) in the path menu

^--may need to reverse one of the subpaths then for a good fill rule.
