which is better for front view...

Post  Guest on Tue Sep 28, 2010 3:27 am

Hi IBC.
before this tree and rock retires on the bench for the final lap of their development as bonsai, may I ask your opinion for the best possible front for this composition?


view #1


this is the original front, highlighted here is the deadwood. note that here the eyes can easily follow the top curve outline of the rock and continuing on the tree's apex. creating the semi circular curve similar to a tree canopy. problem here is the tree's lifeline are mostly hidden from view creating a tanuki effect.


view #2


slight turn and the appearance changes dramatically. here more of the lifeline are visible. highlighted here is the trees tapered look. most of the the deadwood are less visible.


view#3

this is the back. definitely the back.

view#4

another slight turn. this view maximizes the life line view but lessen the tree's ancient appearance.

thanks and regards,
jun

Hi Jun, great composition... this one needs to be on a rotating base of some sort so that it can be appreciated from all angles.

The best view of the stone, and all of its best features, is the first photo.

The tree looks good; you know its not tanuki. Is it too late to re-attach the tree to see the life line. and not have the tree poke you in the face?

After scrolling up and down for half an hour my tiny brain now hurts confused confused

All have their merits and draw back but I personally prefer the first one. The deadwood is stunning and I'm sure in the flesh, so to speak, you can see glimpses of the live vein.

You seem to have an endless supply of quality material Very Happy

Ian,

thanks. you are right the dead wood in actual is very nice indeed. but im planning to change slightly the tone color of the deadwood, something deeper tone perhaps. before the natural moss grew on the rock the rock has almost similar color as the deadwood.

i have a couple of hundred of good ( i hope mostly good ) materials and i cant wait to finish them all.

Todd,
thanks. this is the difference between a pot and a rock container. the typical pot looks the same no matter what side you look at, so there is no problem in finishing the material first then decide afterwards which is good for the front. with rock container, since the medium has multiple faces, the front must be decided first before the completion of the tree.

jun


Justin,
