Last month, for the first time since the pandemic started, I took an in-person art class called "Drawing Whimsical Creatures in Ink and Watercolour." Every participant had to be double-vaxxed, masked and socially distanced so it was as safe as it could be.
The required level of artistic ability was not demanding, so the class was more goofy fun than hard work. The whimsical creatures were all quite cartoonish in nature and quick to do. They are ideally suited for making and illustrating greeting cards for various occasions.
Because the critters are meant to be whimsical, they actually look better when painted in bright unrealistic colours, rather than trying to reflect an animal's natural colour scheme (those results look boring, for the most part).
I've amalgamated some of my best results to show you --
