Carpinus Betulus 2

Post  BobbyLane on Thu Feb 04, 2016 2:32 pm

This is a nursery bought, raw material, pre bonsai..Ive been working on this tree for a few weeks, here are some pics of what ive been doing..it has some faults ive been trying to correct, inverse, bulging...ive been cutting back here and there for taper



After styling

I chose this front as the nebari is better and shows more age, i feel the trunk line is also better..



Back of tree




This is it on a landscape slab to mimic a tree on a hill, inspired by Jun's sleepy hollow tree.

It just needs time to establish and develop now.
the right branch will need to be reduced. the left one too, depending on where it back buds.

It's a style.

Very kitsch though. Wink
