CGAA Summer Speed Paint Challenge: Flaming June

I no longer have photoshop :( Working in Sai painter. I no longer have pretty texture brushes, and I have no idea how to use the software, really. So, I'm limited to the brush tool!

Speed Painting

Here is a speed painting (10~ mins) I drew on photoshop. It has been drawn heavily sleep deprived, but at around 4am when the sun is rising and the world is still but crisp, dimly lighted and pink, I just want to draw & reflect. I have done a lot of speed paintings so far this summer/spring break but I am always reluctant to save them. Trying to make saving a habit!
perhaps the girl ruins it but it's all drawn on one layer, and I CTRL+Z'd as much as I could. No turning back now!
