Hi all friends.

I want to introduce Mugo before restyling. First styling I made in April 2004.Now I will try to improve the construction of the tree.

I'm totally amazed at the first styling. I can't believe that tree was in there. I'm looking forward to what you have up your sleeve next!

For a slant styled tree to be well balanced, there must be a bracing root that stabilizes the lean of the tree (opposite the lean). We have that. The first branch on the left, 'Sashieda' is the branch that defines the movement of the tree. Root and branch that will balance movement are always in opposite directions. The next branch up to the right is called Uke-eda or the counterweight branch. This is also a very important branch. Sashieda brings to the viewer the movement of the trunk while the Uke-eda helps balance the tree.

Usually the Sashieda or branch (red) that defines the tree movement grows the same direction as the tree opposite the root (purple).. The lower branch on the right (blue) is the counterbalance branch or Uke-eda.

To my eye, the overall movement of the tree is in the opposite direction to what you (Pine Queen) describe, even though classically it may be on the 'wrong' side for a slanting tree.

The sense the tree gives me in the last pictures is very dynamic. It looks like a tree that has been captured by a strong gust of wind (blowing from left to right of the picture), I have a real sense of the branches being in motion. It is full of life and energy.

re: Tom - thank you for coment. Yes, you understand the concept of intention, quite rightly. ThumbsUp

re: pine queen - Unfortunately, your perception of the tree completely different. Therefore, you are also confused the branches. Sashi-eda is right, Uke-eda - Counterbalance branch is the left and close to the breaking point. Above the point of breaking strain on the right arm is extended into the space as an open palm. Along toward the top of the tree highlights the energy to the right. Opens space. With such a view tree was shaped from the beginning. But photo-2D does not allow all traced. I give yet another, perhaps better photo. Smile Wink

Hi Pavel,

What a lovely tree. Can't believe it's the same tree shown in pic 1 in 2004. Beautiful transformation.

Salute to you and your work.

Faisal

By the way these techniques I presented were taken directly from Kunio Kobayashi's article 'Bonsai Design Techniques' in Bonsai Today 67. Check it out.

My art teacher taught me freedom of expression and not to copy or stick to predetermined rules. Were still waiting to see the fruit of your art teacher!?!

Hi Faisal - thak you for nice reply Very Happy .

Hi Will - thank you very much for coments, I agree with your comments Very Happy Wink

Hi pine queen - beautiful Pine Mr. Kobayashi known in a long development. Unfortunately, the pine is a completely different character. Optical weight is much larger, the plant has significantly heavier impression and space from the opening hand. It is a model plant in the negative space.
My plant has significantly younger appearance, but more dynamically. Not established properly in the final pot. No branch missing, while obrost dwells on the left side of the breaking strain. Growing to the right in about two years. Right lower branch will grow in length and open more space on the right side. In this atypical and dynamic tree should be more explicitly elaborated negative space on the right side and is to be balanced in space branch on the right side under the top right and bottom branches. Basically, it is mainly the work of the space.

Thanks for your previous comments.


Two more pics. Photo number two is virtually customized pot.
