Design and Critique #12 – Ginkgo Biloba

ginkgo biloba bonsai fall color
Tree by Darlene Hutt and pot commissioned by Victor Harris


This ginkgo biloba has little to no motion within the trunk and branches when in comparison with different excessive caliper bonsai bushes. The nice half about this tree is that it doesn’t want it. Would it not look higher if it had some, certain, however it’s a spectacular tree with out it. This can be a nice instance of how a lot we over analyze the perfection of bushes to a degree the place we overlook the fantastic thing about what it at the moment is.


The show of this picture is spectacular in some ways. You’ll be able to inform effort went into this picture and the way in which they displayed it. The moss is completely positioned to cowl your complete soil floor, the background chosen has a distinction with the colours of the tree, and the timing of the yellow leaves is ideal to go with the dripping yellow glaze on the pot. You then have the shadowing alongside the borders to cap off the picture and add inventive worth to it. Final however not least is the leaf that has fallen that was left on the moss appears intentional to me, and I prefer it.


The steadiness is commonly ignored, however I prefer to level it out as it’s one thing that differentiates novices from novice bonsai artists. You’ll see the tree is positioned to the suitable of the middle of the pot. That is balanced out by the truth that the left trunk provides a visible pull again in the direction of the left. This offers the composition a way of steadiness that you simply wouldn’t have had you positioned the tree within the absolute middle.


I understand how arduous it’s to good time the Fall colour, however this may be a powerful picture if all of the leaves have been yellow.

This pot was made only for a ginkgo, and fits this tree completely, nicely performed.
