Simple solution:

context.fillStyle = color;

context.beginPath();
context.moveTo(20, 40);   // point 1
context.lineTo(70, 150);  // point 2
context.lineTo(110, 80);  // point 3
context.lineTo(180, 170); // point 4
context.lineTo(150, 70);  // point 5
context.closePath();      // go back to point 1
context.fill();

 

Using JavaScript it is possible to fill polygon with some color in following way.

// ONLINE-RUNNER:browser;

<!doctype html>
<html>
<head>
  <style>

    #my-canvas { border: 1px solid gray; }

  </style>
</head>
<body>
  <canvas id="my-canvas" width="200" height="200"></canvas>
  <script>

    var canvas = document.querySelector('#my-canvas');
    var context = canvas.getContext('2d');

    function fillPolygon(points, color) {
        if (points.length > 0) {
            context.fillStyle = color; // all css colors are accepted by this property

          	var point = points[0];

            context.beginPath();
            context.moveTo(point.x, point.y);   // point 1

            for (var i = 1; i < points.length; ++i) {
                point = points[i];

                context.lineTo(point.x, point.y);
            }

            context.closePath();      // go back to point 1
            context.fill();
        }
    }

    var points = [ 
        {x: 20, y: 40},
        {x: 70, y: 150},
        {x: 110, y: 80},
        {x: 180, y: 170},
        {x: 150, y: 70}
    ];

    fillPolygon(points, 'yellow');
