It was then sold on again in quite poor condition and has spent last year regaining health.
Looking at the trunk line I felt there was a more dynamic tree within. The previous design had an almost static appearance with a right left bias. I felt the tree going the other way.
I have just set the bones at the moment and as the foliage settles down in a year or two, more separation and definition will be possible.
Tree un wired and thinned slightly
Change of angle increases dynamism of the trunk in my opinion.
As mentioned at the top, more development needed now bones have been set. The full image makes the tree appear younger and smaller. More negative space and smaller foliage clouds will be developed.
