SUPER LARGE PENJING

Post  Robert Steven on Sat Dec 03, 2011 11:44 am

This is the super large penjing I was doing today..totally 3 meters length.

I combined 3 large special order white marble trays in such arrangement to give a different presentation in perspective and composition.
The mountains were made by real rocks by a friend, hollowed some area for the trees planting. The trees are Triphasia trifolia..

The problem was to find the background for photo, finally got it....
Enjoy it..and have a nice weekends....

Mr.Steven,

well done as usual. I see an island surrounded by islets, where the supernatural of nature roam.
Thanks for posting.

Hi Robert.
Wow!!

Super sized indeed. almost as huge as the one I saw in in Shanghai.

Will it be displayed permanently in its current display area or are you going to display it somewhere public like a museum?

Thanks Kaimraj.

Jun, if you pay for all the freight and handling charges, I will ship it to Philippine..no problem.... Cool

BTW, my bonsai garden is open for public, 24 hours a day and 7 days a week....

That would be nice...but I would have to demolish my entire house to accommodate that new monster baby of yours.

I am sure I'll pay you a visit in the near future, I am looking forward to see this one too.

Very expensive!!! Razz cheers

I'll stay the whole day in your garden and by your Koi pond and absorb some of your knowledge.

I am planning to visit Indonesia next year.

Hung,

The group in front is a close-up hill, the mountains are not that high, so placing one more cascading tree will be too much and bias the focal point. There are already 2 cascading tree on the right back mountain, there is one pointing to the front (not that obvious from the picture), so I prefer to leave some empty spaces here and there.... Thanks for your comment anyway... Very Happy

Jun, I am planning to come in February...after the Chinese New Year...

Hung,

thought I might pass this onto you.

In Fine Art when a painter shows a finished painting, art appreciation is used, and not art critiquing.

Though I view all forms of Penjing and Bonsai as garden craft [ due to the never ending growing of trees, unless one is exhibiting holograms or freeze dried trees which then somewhat becomes sculpture, ] I would extend the same courtesy to all efforts of gardeners.
Khaimraj [ kindly note gentle reader --- who is no god of Penjing or Bonsai ..........]

* The most sincere form of appreciation is when someone purchases an effort at the expected price, the rest is just gum bumping.

Thanks Alain, Mike.

Kaimraj, bonsai might not be a fine-art, but certainly not a garden craft..at least for me. It is an art !
Anyhow, thanks for your comment and Hung's critique is fine with me, I learn more from critique than praising... Very Happy

Thanks Marcus. Love to see yours...

I have about 100 Feronia lucida material prepared to another super large landscape and just ordered the tray as the rocks...
I will use Feronia becuase it has a very charming leaves character, very Chinese look... pirat

I have also just got new Streblus asper materials from a new location, they are all growing on rocks like grouping from the holes..might be another nice and unique landscape... Dance







What is nice with Streblus is that it grows very fast and the leaves size can be reduced.

That is a very nice Streblus asper material.

One question though. In the first picture the trunks needed seems to be there already and some got a good size and distance/spacing necessary for the raft/forest. What is the need for cutting them all and start all over again? I am Not questioning your decision and your wisdom, just asking for the "vision of your soul"?
...or the "FAQ on bonsai". study

Hi Marcus.

As we speak I am preparing a large slab for a Phempis landscape. But not 2 meters,, Aprx 1.50 meters. I am just waiting to a warmer weather to move the Phempis from the pots.
Probably I'll attempt a 3 meter in the near future.

The reason was that when it was collected, all the trunks were too long up, so I should start from the beginning to form them like individual big tree..

Hi Robert,
here is a qick picture of the new beech forest, hopefully with more depth now Very Happy lots of ramification ahead, but they grow quite fast and respond to pruning very well.



and this is a work in progress about 4.25 meters long in the center of my bonsai area - it is winter here though so it looks a little tired



water flows down the large pinnacle of rock from a reservoir buried underneath - the plants are a purple flowering miniature azaelia, juniper chinensis and communis, white pine patio tree (still in the pot at the moment)

thanks Marcus

Very nice work/rework Marcus. It got the depth of perspective.
Refinement of the branches would make this a realistic forest.

Robert,
Thanks!

I got it now.

thanks Jun, yes - so far i have just thought about the trunks - once they have rooted together and have settled from the work i will prune back a lot of the branches to just a bud or two - then it will be clip and grow for many years Very Happy

Very nice Marcus, but can you take another picture from the eye level instead of from above ? I'd like to see the "horizontal line"...
