As skies get closer to the horizon line, they often begin to lose their depth (i.e. the hue changes), so as you get closer to the mountains, add some Manganese or Peacock Blue to the mixture to vary the color. As opposed to the clouds, the edge where the sky meets the mountains should be crisp, so keep an eye on the wetness of the paper. Feel free to paint past the initial frame you drew on the paper, and to have clouds drifting out of the frame.
