Atomic Dream No. 7

On a recent visit to the Atomic Testing Museum in Nevada I couldn’t help but appreciate the surreal side of these monumental experiments nascent in the 1950’s. Considering the era it seemed an appropriate subject for my tribute to Yerka. It was a time of great scientific leaps, emerging freedoms and the end of innocence, but the first thing that struck me was the shape of the blasts. I find it miraculous how Nature can repeat the same form in so many different ways. I chose to work primarily from Yerka’s Jablkomania although there are extensive root/road structures in many of his works.

My painting was done entirely in Photoshop with an original size of 3840 x 2400 pixels. Comments and critiques most appreciated.

Hi everyone,

I would like to share some detail images of my painting. It is almost impossible to see them clearly on the final image size! I was very pleased with the way the clocks and ice cream turned out, and I was particularly proud of the root "vignettes" because I felt as though I was creating pixel art. I hope you will like them:
