How Should I Approach Painting this Sky?

This is a cropped, closeup photo of a sky that is part of a larger painting I am working on and I'm just trying to figure out the best way to paint it. I don't have a lot of experience painting this kind of sky. 

1)Would you recommend underpainting the blues and come back over with the red clouds? That would probably require letting the blues dry a little first, no?

2)Would you recommend doing each completely separately without any overpainting or "blending?" What I'm assuming will be tricky about that, is that some of those red clouds are quite thin with some blue peeking through. I would like to finish the painting sooner than later so waiting for that blue to dry first is something I'd rather not do, but if it's the best option, I will do it. 

Thanks so much for any suggestions.
