I took a four day break from the Sweet Square challenge, so here are five to make up for it. These squares were done in response to another good news story about the surprise birth of a panda cub to Mei-Xiang, the female giant panda at the National Zoo.
These pieces are done in gouache, which I haven't used in a long time. The nice thing about gouache is you can use it wet like watercolors (see #11), or more opaque like acrylics. I used it fairly wet in all of these; if I had used it straight from the tube, the color can be completely flat and opaque.
