Your images are much too tiny to really see. You can size them up to 500 pixels wide.

Hi Rachel, you might resize your images to 500 pixels wide so it is easier for us to view. Looks like you have a good start though on your painting from what I can see. :)

Much better. :) Thank you for resizing. If you are painting the yellow into blue you could try painting yellow, then add a little pink or red then blue. It keeps the blue from turning green. You could practice it on scrap paper or canvas until you see something you like. :) One suggestion I have is paint a hint of the sunset color just above the lower clouds. That carries the feeling of the sunset blending then into the bluer sky. :)

I like the scene you've created and I like the clouds you did although the white may be to bright for the building storm in the distance, I really like the turbulent blue sky!
If you dont want to add red or violet to your sunsets you can underpaint the area with white to prevent the green and make teh yellow really pop.
There are as many ways to paint clouds as there are clouds.
One way is to loosely swirl the brush across the area, adding slightly different colors to build layers.
A large brushed dipped in paint then tapped off so its almost dry and stippled onto the surface, can also be combined with the previous method.
A natural sponge tapped on the surface gives another effect, lightly swirling with a dry brush softens the look, repeat with slightly different colors to add depth.
I like working wet on wet when "building" a sky because the paint creates its own streaky clouds

You've gotten some good advice already. I like the fluffiness of your clouds.
