I Agree with Andre
It really does look like a tree on the african savanha.
With time your ramification will create what Pierneef was painting.
The only thing to work on now is to remove all the growth(green) inside, there is only growth(green) on the out side of the frame.
There is still branch structure inside but no leaves. Hope you get what i am saying.
Well done for creating this from a 2d drawing.

Regards
Brett

Thanks Andre and Brett!!!!!

I think it's the leaf size and general branch structure that make this old Seiju Elm look like the Acacia's (Sorry Iris, I'll never remember the new names) of the African Savana, regardless of what the purists say. Brett, I understand completely what your saying about the inner growth. That will come with time and is probably something I would do in prepration for showing the tree. For the moment, I am leaving that growth as it provides some vigor to the other parts of the tree where I need more canopy to grow in as fast as possible. I'm an old man, and don't have much time to get this thing done so speed is of the essence. I have made a pot for this tree, quite unconventional I might add, and I'm anxious to get the tree into it next spring to see the finished product. I just love the artwork work of Pierneef!!!! Again, Thanks for your kind comments.

ta ta for now,
R

Another year passes and this tree is getting closer to the finish line. Next spring it goes into it's new container and then it's just a couple more years of canopy development. It's been a fun 3 year project but now it's time to do an American Native tree in the Pierneef style. I'm actually quite happy with how this tree turned out. As always pic's are no substitute for seeing the tree in real time

Thanks all!

Yvonne - No, not from South Africa but an avid admirer of the African Savanna style trees. I live in the Mid-Western US in Kentucky.
