To get the painting done quickly I would suggest working monochromatically. This would mean all in one colour. I started out by colouring the whole canvas a medium blue color

Step 9

This is where you want to get loose and the most fun part about the painting. Grab a dark shade of your chosen colour and fill in all of your dark areas. It is good to have a light source in mind that way you can tell where your shadows or dark parts of your painting will be
