styling suggestions for Norway yamadori Sylvestris

Post  Loke Emil on Fri Jan 06, 2012 4:07 pm

Hi Folks

I got this yamadori (not collected by myself) Norway Sylvestris, which is killling my darlings...Originally I was pretty convinced about the future styling of this tree, but now I have more than my second thoughts on how to bring out the best bonsai in this one. The problem is the twin apex (or two main branches each forming an apex shape, almost the same hight). Therefore I ask you fine folks to help me decide witch way to go...twin apex, single apex, compacted or tall slender, etc. I am afraid my photo skills are inferior, but if any other particular angle-shots are required by anyone, I'm up for giving my best shot at it. I might add, that I do not wish to turn this into a spaghetti-styling, rather I am asking towards a 'natural' design, the apex brought closer to the base somehow, though.

I am in no hurry stylingwise. But I was hoping this post might be of some interest to all of you skilled virt-makers. The tree measures: H: 110cm, base: 8 cm (at soil level; nebari unknown), W: 60cm.






any comment is much appreciated, thanks confused

In your first pic., I really like the movement of the left side apex as it moves from L to a hard R. It seems to stay more in line with the overall direction of the tree from the base on up. If you go that way, it looks like you'll stay with an overall slim figure, which really seems to suit this material nicely
