Land/Sea Container

Post  Tom Simonyi on Thu Jul 25, 2013 1:45 pm

I have been working with Carl Rosner, accomplsihed painter and bonsai artist regarding this container.  His guidance has proven invaluable in the creation of the "ocean" side.  The tree in the earlier picture (in 2010) appears fuller than it is now.  It has suffered some dieback during the last few years which has required some restyling.  I plan to post the entire composition at a later date.  I would be glad to provide details of the preparation if any are interested.    Tom

The container with the ocean side.  The coastline was fashioned from the smaller stone which was pulverized.  I expoxied the jagged pieces in place.

Very interesting. Looks pretty good to me, I'd like to see the composition when it is ready.

As a surfer I'll give you a thumbs up on the texture used for the water.. Very realistic for almost high tide. Nice work.

Nice.

Now that I've seen it all together, I think it would be nice if the shoreline weren't quite so straight????  Maybe if it curved a bit around the stone in the front?  Or is it too late for that?
