Re: how to mix a bright blue sky colour

you might try a blue with a payne`s grey
any blue with a bit of any brown

(each of them + white, if you like)

Those will give a blueish-grey sky, quite natural, though not that sunny sort of sky many people long for

Re: how to mix a bright blue sky colour

I use ultramarine blue (green shade) mixed with white and a touch of hookers green (a very small amount). Keep the colour very close to white. Sometimes I will add a small amount of cobalt if I feel like spending money
Its so expensive you see........those pesky series four colours.
