Bonsai Accent Plants

As one of the administrators of this blog, let me make an invitation. Though this is a Bay Island Bonsai blog, anyone may comment on the postsĀ and are invited to do so. So do not think that this is an exclusive site for B.I.B. members only.

At the last B.I.B. meeting we discussed another display. When it comes to bonsai accents, the artistic principle is that the accent should have a subtle flow back towards the main tree (in a two point display). The accent below was rejected by the membership because the flow back to the bonsai was too obvious. What do you think?

Below is another bit that Boon taught the beginners. If the accent flows out of the display, it looks like it is not connected to the main tree.
