Quercus robur - restyling 2010

Post  Pavel Slovák on Sun Mar 07, 2010 6:07 pm

Hi all.

This tree grows my friend about 10 years. It's his first Yamadori-tree-bonsai. Love affair.
I find I work the last 4 years. Took place yesterday restyling.
Change the front view. Tilt tree. I think that the change benefit the tree.

That's a far better angle Pavel. By bringing the apex back in line with the nebari you have given a better balance to the image.

nice improvement!
I think it even will be better if you cut the first branch on the right on the inside of the bend.

I know this one and love it. This change is great and I´m looking forward to see it again in owners garden.
I thought it is Q. petraea, isn´t it?
Wow, really superb change. I love this tree with its incommutable character.

Nice work. The bulb at the base of the trunk could be improved by carving. Then perhaps a new planting angle might work so the number 1 branch doesn't have too cross the trunk.

Hi Antonio, Ian, Ybonsai, Tom, Rob - thank you all for nice coment.

Hi Machiel.
I'm sorry, but I do not understand some questions. My English is not good. Maybe I understand something correctly. This tree is original Yamadori. Strain is the original unmodified bends. Main branches were not significantly modified, the character is original.Fine young branches have long been governed by a shear. This is only the second forming wire. The aim of this styling was finding a suitable angle strain for further cultivation. Been used to compromise - front view - points of strain - the main branch. The special shape and position of deployment of the main branch is natural from the beginning. For someone inappropriate for me interesting and unique. Therefore, such anomalies usually prefer and preserve the composition. The piece becomes more originality.
Perhaps I understand questions and explain something. I will try during the week and take video to show the tree around here. Hopefully will be better understood why I was so .... Wink

Greetings Pavel

Crossing branches are no problem for me. I too think these original branches are what give this tree it's dramatic uniqueness and very interesting character. Just a little carving to smooth out and marry the trunk to the base and this tree is a winner no question!

Ahoj Pavel, kedy bude nasledovať presadenie? Dáš sem aj foto s novou miskou?

Hi Pavel, when will you replant it? Will you post also pictures with new pot?

Regards, Martin

Hi Pavel,
a good job. The tree is unusual and I have not seen him in the material of creation that you made. I saw this ...



Tree for me does not want to be high and elegant, for me would be compact and character.
No bad intentions, only suggest Wink

Hi Pavel. Here is what I think Machiel was trying to say in his post:

First he is pointing out that he is quite new to bonsai and isn't meaning his comments as criticisms but as questions because he wants to learn from what you have done to your tree. He wants to know what you see as the future of the tree and what further work you have planned.

He comments that the taper coming up from the thick low part looks a bit strange. Additionally he thinks the tree lacks taper in the top section.

His last comment is his way of saying you should always enjoy your bonsai.

Hope this helps you, Pavel. And Machiel - I hope this is close to what you meant to say.

This is so very true, Machiel. It's a shame sometimes we're all to embarrassed/scared/polite to ask questions as it is in many cases the quickest way of getting the info you need. Well pointed out.

littleart-fx wrote: Pavel i wrote smile on them pictures, you always look so serious,.....
Hey, Machiel - probably the reason he looks serious is because he has just had to carry his trees. There ain't any of 'em small after all! If it was me carrying those guys, I'd be lucky if I could still breathe afterwards never mind smile.

Pavel, forgive my little jokes: as always I am in admiration (and awe) of your work

Hello Pavel, I have a question. Already folded important section of Quecus? Large branches or a trunk… do you think that it is possible? Thank you.
