Windswept Larix Decidua update 26.12.2015

Update from 26th dec, 2015.

Larix Decidua, windswept.

Had its 3rd and final restyle in 2014. Updated it yesterday, with a few wires, breaking off the old deadwood top and one major deadwood branch at about the centre of the trunk. I also rewired the dead branches in the top, they were created this year, and still contain enough resin to be able to correct them a bit. Soaking them with water and then torch them a bit could also do the job offcourse. The new dead top will be hollowd into the trunk a bit, as well as the ex-jin midway.

Now this is a little tree with very sparse foliage, in windswept style. I think with 2 or 3 more growing seasons I'll allready have a ramification that matches this rough look of sparse foliage. This styling would be quickly ruined with big masses of green on every branch, I need small alternating lots of branchlets.

I bought this as small raw material, back in +/- 2002. It has undergone quite a metamorphosis.

First 3 pictures from yesterday.
