Question Blue sky paint

Hello,
what kind of blue do you use for painting a blue sky without cloud ?
Many thanks in advance for your help.

In England many advocate cobalt blue. If in the Med then French ultramarine blue which many say 'the sky isn't that blue' but it is - well it appears to be .
A BTW is that the sky gets lighter down towards the horizon and has a touch of yellow ochre in it (don't use a yellow or it will turn green as blue and yellow make green).
Jim.

The color of the sky is completely subjective. No one sees it in the same way.
