There are three im­por­tant fac­tors to keep in mind while paint­ing a character caught in a rain storm: the at­mos­phere in the im­age, the ef­fect of wa­ter on a body, and how the wa­ter drops cre­ate an opaque halo around the sub­ject. A cloudy sky turns the scene dark, and the few rays of light that fil­ter through them will be dim and cold­look­ing. So it’s ap­pro­pri­ate to choose cool and un­sat­u­rated colours, and ad­just the light level de­pend­ing on the time of day in

By us­ing de­sat­u­rated colours and paint­ing wet sur­faces and vis­i­ble rain drops, we can cre­ate a con­vinc­ing rain storm scene. Se­lect a rough tex­tured brush, add Scat­ter­ing and paint where the wa­ter splashes on to rocks.
