Happy day everyone!
Curious to hear your initial design concepts and storylines regarding a yamadori oak I acquired in Autumn 2020. All pictures are from that time as well.
I’ve included two pictures of the pre-bonsai, potential front (with stone pillar as backdrop) & back (garage backdrop), as well as two pictures of an inspirational tree located in one of the gardens I steward. The yamadori has some similarities to the native white oak in nature, namely proportions and basic branch layout, and it could be tapped into further in the first iteration styling.
I’d like to honor the inherent qualities this collected oak offers the world, and thought it would be an informative study subject.
Fondest and warmest regards!
