It is very important to develop the right palette. These colors will mix together nicely and help in creating the color you want. For the blues I use ultramarine, cobalt and cerulean. Greens: I use viridian Yellows:yellow ochre, Lemon Yellow, Hansa Yellow. reds alizarin crimson, Windsor red. Browns: iron red oxide, Burnt sienna, raw sienna. I also like cadmium orange to warm things up. also like to use Titanium White for it is the strongest white.
In Painting sky, use cerulean blue at the horizon and blend this up into Cobalt Blue for the upper sky. In painting waves use a mixture of Cobalt Blue with Viridian.
