Small penjing

Post  Guest on Tue Sep 11, 2012 1:15 pm


Hi IBC!

Today I made a small penjing.





Tree doesn't have to be expensive and very special. this one got no nebari and was just an straight stick branch cutting.

I like your penjing. Are they more difficult to care for than normal bonsai in pots?

Jun, what is the old man holding?
Is it a fishing pole?
But... where is the water? Laughing

My dream is to set up a penjing some time. When that time comes I will contact you for instructions, my friend.

Mitch.

Thank you! Glad you like it.

Judy,

Thanks!

No, it is very easy to maintain. specially if the tree or trees you'll be using is small and matured tree. Clipping it from time to time is all you need. The ground cover, rock, will also get better as the moss or other element matures naturally in time.

Alexandra,
Any time! I am very much sure you could do it. Just show me the small tree, a slightly bigger rock and some smaller ones, and a flat tray. for the rock it is better to have rocks that can be found with texture and has natural moss on it.

.....Fishing pole, yes. The water is just imaginary ones represented by the fine black sand, but it (water area) should be wider/longer, the proportion of land mass to water area I am using mostly is for land 75% and to Water 25%. sometimes a small difference will spell out disproportion or the image too constricted. I was thinking of putting a walking old man figurine placed on the trail by the old fence.

Yes, it's the colour of the sand that makes me wonder. Could this be some kind of whitish/greenish or could it not? Is there any specific reasoning for your colour choice?

Lovely as always Jun

Your works are always inspirational. I would attempt something like this but the windy and dry conditions of my growing area are not friendly towards moss. Guess I could try a desert penjing Wink

Yes Alexandra. A white sand will rather represent a "white sand" and not a body of water like a beach sand and not a pond or lake or river which comes in deep darker color. and the color white/beige would not match old rustic motif of the composition. I even selected this used old pot for this purpose.

"Creative skills"! that is the holy grail of any art form...I am on a stiff struggle to acquire it too.

So, even the most expensive materials would be worthless unless you know where it is going.

Mgallex,

Thank you!

After I made the "three Magi" scene last Christmas, I am attempting to create a penjing of Oasis. maybe you could try it too.
