So in order to render, probably the easiest thing to do is just hit the F12 key and that will very quickly render your image.

So let's talk about diffuse shaders. In the default Blender material, we have two main options here: Diffuse, which provides the color and Specular, which provides the highlight. So in this one you notice how the color is kind of a blue and the highlight is white. If I wanted to, I could change the color of that highlight, so make it a much brighter color, something like that, and if I hit F12, you can see how it's kinds of little bit yellower.
