new design-windswept

Post  Guest on Fri Nov 25, 2011 2:39 pm

Hi IBC,
This is the second tree that I worked on today...that I would like to share with you.

This tree was giving me headache scratch for more than two years now on how to approach the design. It got a very very ugly base, and a much uglier trunk line. After sorting out some design solutions based on my new favorite books Wink. I decided to change the approach and see what I'll get out of this ugly material.

John,

Thanks!
For me I consider two types of windswept. The first one is the tree that is being continuously battered by the wind- like trees along the shoreline or cliff edge. and the trees formed in this areas got very different characters, such as contorted trunks and branches and mostly with one sided branches The other one I observed was a temporary windswept- a tree with normal trunk and branch growth, like we might commonly find in a field but if we caught a glimpse of a tree temporarily being blown by the wind I find it with features like my windswept above.

Well done. Windswept is a tough one to do well.

Jun - nice looking tree! I don't think you mentioned the species (or I just missed it), what is it?

John asked "what would it be like if the left branch was pruned off ??" Easy enough to get an idea (though I'm not sure which branch he means nor exactly how much foliage is associated with it):

hi Jun,

it is so close to being in windswept harmony - i see a monsoon- one tiny little adjustment suggests itself to me............after the 'main' trunk there is the thinner upper trunk - it is also straight upright, but would add more dynamic movement if you could curve it to the right gently.

cheers for now, Marcus
