Good work Helen. Mostly all good. Your best cloud forms are on the left whereas the ones of the top right got a bit confused in the darker values, as well as how the land connects to the sea and the clouds bottom left are a bit malformed. Notice there you reversed the idea of flattening the bases as the recede - you have the one closest to us with the flattest base. There's also the overpowering orange in that scene which stops abruptly behind the cloud rather than transitioning smoothly. Looking at these paintings in a mirror will give you a whole new feeling for what's going wrong (or right) with your could shapes. Great studying!

These all feel very atmospheric to me.  I like the tiny boats in the first one as they give the sky scale.  Wonderful work.
