Do You Use Virtual Designs?

Postby Pearcy001 » May 2nd, 2018, 6:14 pm

Hi all,

I worked on a tree today. As I seem to do with most trees, I made a virt. I find it assists me in working out branch placement and the future of the tree. It then gives me a design to work towards in the future (although it often still changes).

As you can see the virt changed the front Jin, extended the lower branches and set the overall final shape for the tree.

Simple question, does anyone else use a virtual design when working out a trees future?? Or have you got another way or working it out? Unfortunately I can't sketch like some so I need to design it on my phone.

If anyone wants to test there own skills with the attached photo (or even a different tree), feel free to have a tinker and post their design on this thread as a bit of fun.

Cheers,
Pearcy.

I am a Fine Artist, trained in Florence, Italy.

Since I work from seeds, cuttings and seedlings, I evolved a similar technique to
how I work on an imaginative image.

From a small cutting since 1980 or so - three leaves in the beginning.

It helps a great deal if I am familiar with the shrub or tree type.
