In the dark twilight

Step 1.As always, we will create a new document (arbitrary size) and fill it with solid color (use the tool Fill ). Pick about the same color as in the previous figure.

Step 2. Duplicate the layer. We use a very large brush of different colors (by analogy with the main color), preferably a soft one. Draw arbitrary lines. Now use the filter Gaussian blur (with a large radius, I have a blur of 100%).

Step 3. We use the following filters:
Noise – Add Noise (approximately 50-60%)
Sketch – Wet Paper
Imitation Sponge
Imitation – Watercolor (drill-down maximum, shadow depth-minimum)

Each filter must be set up carefully and experimented to achieve “naturalness.” After applying each filter, click Ctrl – Shift – F (Fade) reduce the efficiency of the filter and make it translucent (40-60%). It should be about the effect as in the figure above.

Step 4. Here is a photo that I used. Using tool Move drag it into the document …

Select the layer containing the photo, change the blending mode to Multiplication and opacity on 80%. Create a copy of the layer (Ctrl-J), set the blending mode to Overlay and Opacity to 50% (you can change these settings for your photo).

Step 5. In the editor there brush , which is called Round with coarse bristles (from the group Wide brushes). Select it, create a new layer and fill it with randomly black and white strokes, as shown in the picture above.

Set this blend mode to Overlap and opacity at 50%. If you are unable to achieve such an effect as mine, then apply a Blur Filter to this layer.

The final touch is trees growing across the screen. You can use the brush “Trees”. You can download them. On the new layer, add the branches of the trees with a black brush. It is better to add each branch on a separate layer so that you can edit the size and rotate the brush in the direction you want.

That’s all!

But the work of a translator:
