I am a beginner. I am in love with the shape of trees, and when I watch my trees, I can immerse myself and feel in a landscape.
So I am very prone to add some element to give scale ( a stone, an animal, fence, bridge, person,...). Don't get it wrong, the trees are the main elements, but I can't forget the landscape as the goal.
After some personal research, I've come to understand that penjing is a wider art, that includes bonsai, and I don't have to be a bit ashamed when I show my (beginner) work.
This article by Karin Albert © 2005 is deep enough to understand the penjing/bonsai relation (also the chinese roots of Japan):
