Be patient , think what you want your tree to look like first then the cuts will be obvious , look at it every day or when you water it and try see " the tree within the tree" maybe draw something up , the more you think about the easier it will be to see what it will become , if you are hasty noting will come of it

Hardest part for me... take care of the tree, be patient. Look at it, study it. Don't get rid of branches too fast. Eventually it will come to you, just like that, you'll know how the tree is supposed to look like. Any ideas on what style?

Maybe semi cascade or informal upright. The problem I'm having is the thickness and dispersion of the branches. I'm thinking of turning that lower right branch into a Jin of sorts but have very little experience when it comes to doing that. Then I'm not sure what best follows the aesthetic of Bonsai. I'll keep studying it
