AP: gnd filter with complex form

Recommended Posts

lets say i took a picture of a landscape with a mountain.

now i want to darken only the sky by using a gnd filter effect.

but i want to leave out the mountain.

in lightroom i would use the gradient tool on the sky, switch over to brush, switch mask-overlay on, select erase and remove the mountain from the gradient filter.

(lr_before and lr_after)

in ap i use a curves-layer, added a mask-layer and used linear gradient fill with transparency 0 at the lower end. 
but when i am trying to edit the mask i can only guess where i am editing since i can't see the image no more.

an other way is shown in your tutorials - but here i don't know how to edit the gradient.


so how do i do this in ap?
