The supertrees

We went to Garden by the Bay for the Jun sketchwalk. It was really fun and exciting although the weather was so hazy, hot and humid. This was the first sketch in the morning when I hide at the shaded corner at the Chinese garden overlooking Silver Garden to sketch. 11 out of 18 of these Supertrees are embedded with environmentally sustainable functions like photovoltaic cells to harvest solar energy. These unique trees of up to 16 storeys in height can be found all around the Gardens - 12 at the Supertree Grove, while the remaining 6 are placed in clusters of threes at the Golden and Silver Garden.
