Landscape Penjing


As the name suggests the penjing artist here tries to convery a natural landscape such as a mountainside.  This form tends to be almost more of a rock garden.  It focuses less on the tree and more on the landscape.


Water and Land Penjing


The aim of this one is to produce the most realistic landscape by incorporating elements from both tree and landscape styles.  Inside the pot you will add an area for a water feature of your choosing.  You will want to use a shallow container so any trees you use will need their roots pruned.  The rocks you select for the landscape are also very important.  It is recommended you use rounded stones that have a dull weathered look.


Here you can see a good example I saw on KoB.
