The other thing you should know is the Zoom level. The Zoom level is found in the Navigator Window - it is highlighted on the image below:

Now, let's paint with the zoom level set at 400%.

The result of that would be like this:

Next, let's fix the other part. Start by creating a new layer (Ctrl/Cmd + Shift + N) and input "Gray 2" on the name field. Next, activate the Brush tool (B) and input the following:
  • Brush size: 15px
  • Hardness: 0%
  • Opacity: 100%
  • Flow: 100%
  • #: 8b8b8b
  • Zoom: 400%
Now, let's paint:

The result of that would be like this:

Next, let's enhance the colors of these "gray" colors to make it look realistic. We will do this by adding white paint on top of some parts of it. Create a new layer (Ctrl/Cmd + Shift + N) and name it "White 1". Activate the Brush tool (B) and then input the following:
  • Brush size: 40px
  • Hardness: 0%
  • Opacity: 25%
  • Flow: 100%
  • #: cdd5e2
  • Zoom: 200%

The result of that would be like this:

Now, let's add white paint to the other "gray" region. Create a new layer (Ctrl/Cmd + Shift + N) and name it "White 2". Activate the Brush tool (B) and then input the following:
  • Brush size: 20px
  • Hardness: 0%
  • Opacity: 25%
  • Flow: 100%
  • #: 9f9f9f
  • Zoom: 200%

The result of that would be like this:

Now that we're done, select all the layers and press Ctrl/Cmd + G to group them. We would need to group them to avoid confusion on later steps. Rename this group to "Background". Note: Renaming a group is similar to renaming a layer. Just double click on the words "Group 1" and a text box would appear. You would also notice that the layers have been hidden from view, to view them again just left click on the arrow beside the Group's name. See below:

Step 3: Create the View through the Window

In this step, we will add a snowy landscape as the view through the child's window. To start, open "Snowy weather stock 11" by SimplyBackgrounds. Now, we won't have to create any selection areas or anything, we just have to drag this image using the Move tool (V) to our canvas. Position this new layer below all the layers that we have created. See image below:
image035
After positioning it below the Background layer, rename this layer to "Snowy landscape". The "Snowy landscape" should appear as shown on the image below:
image036
Composition wise, the snowy landscape is terrible! So we would flip it horizontally - to do that, activate the Transform tool (Ctrl/Cmd + T) while the "Snowy landscape" layer is selected and then right click on the canvas to show the contextual menu of the Transform tool. When the contextual menu opens, click on "Flip Horizontal".

After clicking on it, this will be the result:
image038
Still, the composition still looks hideous! So activate the Transform tool again (Ctrl/Cmd + T) and then resize by following the instructions below:

The result of that would be like this:
image041
image042
After that, create a new layer (Ctrl/Cmd + Shift + N), name it as "Light" and put this layer on top of the "Snowy landscape" layer. We will be amplifying the light on the "Snowy landscape" image through this layer. Activate the Brush tool (B) and input the following:
  • Brush size: 700 px
  • Hardness: 0%
  • Opacity: 25%
  • Flow: 100%
  • #: ffffff
image043
The result of that would be:
image044
When you're done, select the layers "Light" and "Snowy Landscape" and group them (Ctrl/Cmd + G). Name this group to "Through the window". This group will be created within the Background group.
