Chapter 1167: Drawing in the Rain (2)
Muir immediately flew down, bringing over the drawing boards and charcoal, then a chunk of wood as a stool for her to sit on.
With that, Bai Qingqing was able to sit down comfortably in the small hut and started drawing.
Winston and Curtis climbed up to the hut in succession, turning into their original forms and laying on the floor quietly. They’d occasionally look at their mate, who was drawing seriously. The atmosphere was quiet and wonderful.
Only the leopard cubs couldn’t stand the loneliness, so they played happily in the colorful sea of flowers. They’d occasionally enter Bai Qingqing’s drawing scene, leaving a few disharmonious figures.
Bai Qingqing wasn’t angry. Since they appeared, she drew them as well. Although it was disharmonious, they surprisingly made the drawing look more lively.
An’an got hungry quickly, and it wasn’t long before she smacked her lips to express it. Parker was afraid to disturb Bai Qingqing, so he left quietly. He went over to the beehive where the leopard cubs had been stung the other time, took a small piece of golden yellow honey, then stuffed it into An’an’s mouth.
Eating just honey alone was definitely not enough, so Parker and Winston made a trip home, prepared lunch that was convenient to bring out, then brought it into the small hut in the forest.
In the afternoon, it really started to rain.
The rain was heavy outside but light amongst the tree crown.
However, as Parker had meticulously woven a vine net on the hut’s roof, then placed a few pieces of big leaves on it, not a single drop of rainwater got in.
Amidst the wind and rain, the Chinese wisteria flowers became increasingly brilliant and eye-catching, with every flower being dazzlingly beautiful. The many flowers formed a sea of flowers, making it more beautiful than ever.
Bai Qingqing didn’t have good drawing skills and only had ample theoretical knowledge. As she had little practice, her control was extremely bad as well. However, such beautiful scenery gave her endless inspiration, allowing her to perform above her standards.
Drawing was something that would easily make one engrossed in. This time around, Bai Qingqing was so immersed in the activity that she forgot about everything else. She only returned to her senses when the sky turned dark and she couldn’t see things clearly anymore.
“Oh, the day has already pa.s.sed,” said Bai Qingqing in surprise, rubbing her eyes.
She turned her head and saw wild beasts sleeping everywhere in the hut.
The three leopard cubs were nestled together, with a big coiled-up snake next to them. On the other side was a black eagle with his head buried amidst his wings. Further down was a white tiger with a baby lying on his stomach, and finally, there was the groggy mature leopard.
“Howl~” Parker swung his head and got up to take a look at the drawing. He let out a yawn before turning into his human form.
“You’re done drawing?” Parker’s voice had a strong nasal sound.
Bai Qingqing nodded. “En.”
She moved her body and only then did she notice that her shoulders felt extremely stiff. She immediately scrunched up her small face, put down the charcoal, and ma.s.saged her shoulders.
Parker quickly walked over behind her to ma.s.sage her shoulders, his eyes still on the drawing as he praised her. “It looks so good.”
The one-meter-wide white paper was covered in black color. The main theme was a Chinese wisteria tree with draping vines, with three little leopards darting amongst them. There was also a drizzle in the air.
Although it was a black and white drawing and some of the details weren’t perfect, it was enough to make Parker surprised and praise it.
“It’s not! You guys are the only ones who will think that it is good.” Bai Qingqing smiled. She then also looked at her drawing. To speak the truth, it could only be considered a pa.s.s.
However, this was also the best work that she had ever drawn. In the past, she didn’t have so much time and patience to draw a piece of artwork.
“Ssss~” The snake raised his head, flipping up the translucent membrane, and his gaze instantly turned clear.
Winston’s breathing also sank as he yawned and opened his eyes. He took a look at Bai Qingqing, then carried An’an while turning into his human form.
Muir drew his head out from his wings, turning to look toward her.
