Initial line & color completes 80% with black complete.

C9: The 2 needs to be placed in either R26-27 or R30-31. Either one will need to use the remaining 1 in C8, so R20C8 must be white. Minimal LL.

C19: Whether the 2 goes into R26-27 or into R30-31, R30-31 C15-16 will be white.

R31: If the 3 goes into C17-19, the 2 in C9 will need to go into R26-27, which marks R27 C9-12 green. This leaves no room for the 2 in R31, so R31 C17-19 must be white. LL finishes the green.

R9: Wherever the red 1 goes, it will place red into R10-11. R10C16 and R11 C11-15 are white.

LL to finish.
