For composition purposes, we will transform our sky layer so that the beautiful parts of the sky would be seen. To do that, select the "sky" layer once again and activate the Transform tool (Ctrl + T) and follow the instructions shown on the image below:

After that, we're going to transform it once more, and again, for composition's sake. This time, we're going to resize the sky for the viewer to see bluest part of the sky and to make our image appear more minimal. To start, click on the "sky" layer and then activate the Transform tool (Ctrl + T). See more steps on the images below:

Now, we're going to create the light on the horizon. To start, let's create a new layer by pressing Ctrl/Cmd + Shift + N on your keyboard. When the New Layer box opens, type: "Light 1" as its name. Next, position this layer between the "Sea" and "sky" layer. Once you've done that, activate the Brush tool (B) and input the following settings:
  • Brush size: 500px
  • Hardness: 0%
  • Opacity: 15%
  • Flow: 100%
  • #: fff9c7
To input those settings, first press B on your keyboard to activate the Brush tool (B) and input all the settings mentioned above on their respective places on the Options window (Shown below). See image below:

To input the value #: fff9c7, simply follow the instructions shown on the image below:

Now we're all set to paint in the light on the horizon. Click on the "Light 1" layer, activate your Brush tool (B) and then follow the steps on the images below:

The result should be similar to the following:

When you're done, select all the layers that you've created and the press Ctrl/Cmd + G to group the layers. You'd notice that a folder will be created; to see the layers, simply click on the drop-down button. Rename this Group to "Background". Note: Renaming a group is similar to renaming a layer.

Step 3: Add Rain

Now in this step, we will be adding rain to make the image look it is in the middle of a mighty storm. To do that, we will need to create a new layer first (Ctrl/Cmd + Shift + N) and name this new layer: "Rain 1". With that done, activate the Brush tool (B) and then open the Brush pack: "digea rain brushes" by Jelena Jovovic – before everything else, make sure that you have downloaded these brushes on the Photoshop Brushes directory (Adobe Photoshop > Presets > Brushes). Now we will open the brushes. To do that, first right click on the canvas while the Brush tool (B) is activated and then click on the drop-down menu to show the advanced Brush's options. See image below:

Once you're done with that, we will Load the brushes from the directory where we saved it.

Now, upon clicking "Load Brushes" from the menu, it would prompt you to the Photoshop Brushes directory. Locate "digea rain brushes" and then press OK. Once open, right-click on the canvas while the Brush tool (B) is activated and then pick the following brush:

Once loaded, use the following settings for the Brush tool (B).
  • Brush size: 2500px
  • Hardness: Default
  • Opacity: 100%
  • Flow: 100%
  • #: ffffff
Now, let's paint the rain!
