need help with this color

Hi everyone, i’m very new at painting. 
I’m trying to mix a sky color using only the primary colors: tita white, crimson red, ultra marine blue, cadmium yellow  (also have burn umber).
My goal is to use only these colors as I’m trying to follow the method from drawmixpaint and the color wheel. I must have watched the youtube video “how to match any color with oil paint” more times than I can count but no luck getting anywhere close to this blue. What am I doing wrong? I go through all my questions one by one (does it need more blue, yellow, red etc).
Any color I get is either to greyish or goes towards yellow. Even when adding very small amount before mixing. Spent a good 4 hours on this and starting to doubt myself. Maybe painting isn’t for everyone after all...
