Pinus mugo 2006

Post  Pavel Slovák on Fri Feb 19, 2010 5:52 pm

Hi all friends.

The pine was first planted in a container in 1974 (seedling 5 years old).I have received it in spring 2006.

Great work. I first thought you planted some seedlings in with it. Very innovative. Keep them coming cheers

In my opinion your use of the back branch is clever and believable. I'm not too sure about the ten-jin however. Seems incongruous a little from the pics, as there doesn't seem to be any other significant jin or shari on the tree. Perhaps it is also working against the downward motion of what is essentially a cascading branch, pulling in different directions. The image looks better to me if I cover up the jin.

The same ! I also thought you had planted seedlings, or made a graft. Beautiful result.

I also think that the jin may not be necessary, it distracts from the overall design, especially the "multi-trunk" feel...

Hi Bobby, the answer is you cant!
like all great Artists/Artisans,musicians, sculptors etc etc you are born with the gift, admittedly! basics can
be taught & learned but the bottom line is you either got it or you aint, I know people in my trade that have
been practicing for 35years and still no further on lol!, at the same time this should not stop or discourage anyone from enjoying or being part of it ThumbsUp

Again really nice work Pavel ThumbsUp

Hi all.
Thank you very much for nice replies. Very Happy

Today I removed the jin. I think the composition is better. Wink

Hi Pavel, nice work. I think it looks better without the jin.

The back branch that you bent down; did you (or will you) approach graft it to the base of the trunk?

Much better without jin! Excellent idea with the lowered first branch.

Again Pavel, great work, sensitive and well executed... and... its small!

bobby little wrote:how do people learn to do this? Shocked

Alex is... in principal correct 'the bottom line is you either got it or you ain't' but there is no substitute for practice, practice, practice, going to a good teacher, meeting with like minded and radical thinkers. How else will you discover whether 'you either got it or you ain't'

I could be an amazing piano player but I have never actually sat down and attempted to play.

Again Alex is spot on "I know people in my trade that have been practicing for 35years and still no further on" I too know the very same folk, its not that the simply cannot do it, its usually because they are in their comfort zone and that is fine for them.

If you reach contentment you have ceased learning.

A suggestion

Post  Luis Fontanills on Sun Feb 21, 2010 4:04 pm

Pavel,
First, let me congratulate you on an exceptional job; the balance and composition is first rate. The trick with the first back branch is ingenious, but the illusion is lost when viewing the tree in the round. Can this branch be lowered further, and buried (with appropriate techniques to root), and when rooted eliminate it from the mother tree? This is after all the illusion you have created from the front.

In the long run, the back branch lowering technique will keep it from being all it can be.

I disagree. You are assuming that the purpose is to fool the viewer into believing there are multiple trunks, and it does somewhat appear that way, although as you point out the illusion is not perfect. However to someone who has lived where there is heavy snow, the idea that a lower branch could be pulled down in this way is completely believable and that it is completely sufficient for it not to look like a true multiple trunked tree, but simply what it is.

Hi all friends.

Thank you for your positive response and comments.
re: Roger and Luis - thanks for the reminder. But it's the way he wrote Velodog. I do not want to graft a branch or to form roots.Composition is a fallen, broken lower branch. I need to improve the branch of the strain to come down. Then the composition should be improved. Wink

i like it! in bonsai we have to have commitment... you must think every day to improve the art. live with the nature to realize that you made part of it...know how each specie lives in a pot, care about... too much phylosofi, sorry! Very Happy

I really enjoy all the trees you post, and you really have (it seems) lots of trees. How many trees do you have? Can you post a picture of where/how you keep them all?

Hi Pavel

...ENVY, ENVY and then some inspiration and hope for amateurs like me - given the 2006 material; Something similar can be found in nurseries, even in the danish 'wild' forrests...But the way you control the tree from raw starter-material is awesome cheers
