This is a beautiful tree regardless of what style/form it may be pigeon-holed into. The Literati feel of this tree is dramatized by the movement and caliper of the trunk. If the tree were in leaf the trunk would of course be made less effective visually, and perhaps with it, the "Literati feel" diminished.

If the statement that a Literati is a tree with the least amount of elements/brush strokes that still portrays the form of a tree, this tree could be made to work with less elements than it now has. I can see at least three possibilities where the tree could be reduced and still make a nice bonsai and become more like what we often recognize as Literati. However; far be it from me to tell Walter what to do with one of his trees. As I said earlier it is beautiful (sorry to use that word) the way it is and as long as Walter's goal is to design trees he has succeeded. As to it being Literati, I am not convinced.

I think this is essentially true. It has been said that the Literati style is not generated by any natural form but made from the imagination. I disagree with this in as much as you can see this form in nature if you look as you have pointed out. It could be said that the Literati is an expression of the naturalistic style.

"It could be said that the Literati is an expression of the naturalistic style"
Vance Wood

ONLY if the tree were styled that way! To label all Literati this way makes no sense, unless you are really just promoting an agenda.

Please forgive me but your, and it seems rather harsh in tone, post says nothing. Could you please explain or expand a little?

1) ONLY if the tree were styled that way!
Interpretation: ONLY if the tree were styled that way! It could be styled as a contemporary, classical, neoclassical etc...
2) To label ALL Literati as "naturalistic style" makes no sense
Interpretation: Since there are so many possible schools of styling, how can you possibly attach the "naturalistic style" logo to all Literati?
You made this connection and I am in disagreement with your idea.
3) Unless you are really just promoting an agenda.
Interpretation: Since there is no support offered for your statement, I can only assume that you are just promoting "naturalistic style".
I enjoy creating Literati Bonsai and I can assure you they are not created in the "naturalistic style".
