After the initial sketch is complete, I always finish the background sky first, and then give depth to areas with a combination of alizarin crimson, prussian blue, and lamp black. Sometimes two or three coats are required with a drying space of days in between each application.

 Here you see where I have started the first layer for the water, which I do with thin layers of paint thinned with Liquin.  The main trees are blocked in now.

 here you can see multiple layers applied in thin washes of paint, building up as I go along, so that the colours give the appearance of water, or tree branches.
