TOPIC: Juniperus communis - carving practice

Juniperus communis - carving practice 1 year 7 months ago #31520

With the Bonsai club, we visited Lagas bonsai, known for his large collection of pre-bonsai - including a lot of great Yamadori.
I found this little juniper there, that had big fat stumps of old branches. Seemed a nice tree to practice my carving on.
Forgot to make a 'before' photo.

Took me quite some time, but I'm not unhappy with the result. Obviously, this is not the final result. I'll let the elements do their work, and later - probably next year - refine the work. It's not fully clear where the live veins feeding that left branch are. There are three areas, at the back, at the top, and at the front. I hope this thin strip at the front will continue to grow and get fatter.
