The sky is painted ultramarine blue - as I would expect it to be on Mount Olympus.
Taking my time on these stages gives me more clarity about how I want the finished paintings to look.
I remember in art school being told of one painter who used to paint a dozen or so copies by laying them all out and painting all the skies together, then each stage thereafter. I don't think I could do that, two feel odd enough!
