Expressive Mugo pine

Post  MerschelMarco on Sun Nov 28, 2010 11:31 am

Here is a mugo pine I have for six years now.

The first Image is from 2004 short after collecting


The tree after working on the deadwood-parts


The tree today. It still needs a few years to get more refinement.



Best regards,
Marco

Hi Marco

Very nice trees and nice work Very beautiful tree and beautiful work on dead wood. Very Happy ThumbsUp
The first styling looks great. Good job. But for me to fit back over the top of the tree trunk base. I see dynymický strain dynamic dead wood in the direction of strain. I'd probably vote for in this direction and the direction of the energy tree.
Please, not a critique of your work. Just my humble opinion as a viewer. Otherwise, a really beautiful tree.ThumbsUp

Beautiful tree!

However, I would ask [ quietly ] the design seems to suggest using considerably less driftwood?

Hi Marco,
that's a very impressive first styling my friend! This will be a great bonsai in the near future, well don indeed! cheers cheers
But one remark, your tree needs a slightly bigger and much deeper pot, to give it enough weight to hold it visual upright.
Cheers,
Hans van Meer.

Hello Marco. You have collected some wonderful material and have styled them really well. I don't find the deadwood too much and love the natural feel you have achieved. I think Hans is right about the pot.

Hi Marco,

I agree with Hans & Will regarding the pot,you can minimize the deadwood LATER if you feel its too much,no hurry...nevertheless great specimen there and design,thanks for sharing

Alex

Pavel,
I thought about this a very long time. The reason why i decided to bring the crown bachwards to the direction of the trunk base and against the movement of most of the deadwood-parts ist the first branch on the left side. This branch has a very nice movement and a strong character. To make the crown as you expect makes it necessary to cut of this branch. So I finally decided to go this way.

Hans,
I also think you`re right with the pot. Two years ago the crown was much lighter and because of this the whole tree apeared lighter and the pot seemed to fit well. Now a heavier pot is surely more appropiate.
But a good pot in this size is hard to find and much harder to pay. I will search for it.

Enclosed a photo were you can see the size of the tree. Don`t worry about this silly looking face albino

Marco

Hi Marco,
hope you dont mint, but I looked for such a long time at your beautiful Mugo, that it inspired me to make a virtual. It's just a idea that I saw looking at your work!
Cheers,
Hans van Meer.

Great virt Hans. The balance is better now and the differing heights in the low branches.

Hi Hans

Very , very nice virtual. Very Happy ThumbsUp

With permission to borrow the shape of a tree. Wink I was just thinking. Just on the other side. I know it would be necessary to reduce bending. Just a suggestion, and I think it was real. Wink Very Happy

Hi Pavel,
yes that could work as well! The possibilities of a good yamadori like this are endless! Marco's Mugo works very inspiring to all of use! Very Happy
I look forward to follow the progression of his work!!!

Hans, Pavel,

I feel flattered because of your great vituals. That`s inspiration for me, precisely because the tree looks a little bit undecided by now. But that`s my way to style, the shape of a tree is not fixed with the first styling, but approaches step by step to it`s final shape.
It`s a pity that one cannot copy such a tree just to test different versions.

Regards,
Marco

Hi Marco,

yes, as You say, the tree looks undecided (by now). I feel that too, heavily. I feel like "something´s gonna happen"! Something´s gonna explode, releasing big energy.

Hi Marco,
you are more than welcome! I enjoy making them!
I know what you mean by copying to test different versions! But that would only make you more doubtful in the end. Just take your time and dont look to much at this tree with only design in your mind, enjoy this moment in time. Look with a open mind, follow all the lines, step back, tilt your head, walk away! look underneed the canopy, step back a bit further, close one eye and hold your hand in frond of the open one to block out parts of your tree, walk away. Make quick drawings, Putting your ideas on to paper, imprints them in your mind! Or even better, every now and than just forget the tree for a couple of weeks or so! As long as you dont look to hard and your mind is open to receive, it will sneak up on you when you least expect it! Smile And I am pretty sure that you will have no problem finding your ideal vision of how this tree should look. You already have done the real hard part and are well on the way creating a stunning bonsai! It is already good enough to inspire use to make these virtuals! Smile This was the long way of saying: I made a other one! Smile I like this one! Smile

Now the tree and the whole design have changed a little bit. The main trunk now has a twisted deadwood part that looks quite spectacular.

I`am looking forward to rewire and repot the tree next year.

regards,
Marco

Is it not the norm to have the apex over the base of the trunk? Or is that just a 'rule' for when it looks best there? Btw, I like both Han's and Pavel's virts.
