On something like this, my mind turns first to Google Images:

https://www.google.com/search?q=Literati+bonsai&oe=utf-8&rls=org.mozilla:en-US:official&client=firefox-a&um=1&ie=UTF-8&hl=en&tbm=isch&source=og&sa=N&tab=wi&ei=X-vcTvL9JoyztweRlpDsAQ&biw=1580&bih=712&sei=Y-vcTrfqMca2twe79LzsAQ

That oughta do you.

Another opportunity besides the world wide web, is reviewing the works of the Japanese artist Hiroshige. infact,
John Naka, in his series of books on bonsai specifically mentions this artist as someone to check into. I have one Bunjin, that I have worked on with Michael Hagadorn for the past several years. It's an Aka matsu (japanese red).
good luck with your search Smile

hi,
here are some sketches by forum member Cram of some unstyled pine material i posted pictures of - one tree is styled now and the other is nearly finished so i'll put the second pine tree image up soon. The other picture is a juniper i pruned very hard a few months ago so it is very thin, but the trunk and lifeline are nice now.

cram sketch - bunjin

tree i styled from it


Juniper - literati


plus this film will help you a lot

bunjin film

cheers Marcus

Thanks for your responses.
I have tried this to style this white den.
future must still reduce needles.
still a shari created on the trunk?

I think a little less foliage. Since you did not create any jin, perhaps a shari would be out of place. The "bad weather" that created the shari would, it seems, also have created a few jin????

It is going to be very nice.

hello Jeffrey,

I would be very brave and put a nice bend in the lower half of the trunk - and as Jim says a lot less foliage - there are too many branches at the top, both to the left and right. These could be jinned, then a shari could be added if you like the idea.

Excelent literati material though, it will be very impressive

regards Marcus

edit.......i'd be VERY brave and make the bend to the left............the movement in the tree will be brilliant Very Happy

Hi Jeffrey.
Large bonsai is 1.20 meter max height, So I guess that is the max for literati too. if you would expect to join your tree in a show that is the max ht...but there is also an Imperial size which reaches 10ft in height.


This is my above large literati under development...




...The question is is there a mame size for literati? That would be lovely to see.

If I recall rightly, this one is about 4 feet tall . . . As in other aspects, literati can defy many of the measurement "rules."



I'm sure there ARE limits, though.
