Gina says, "There are many styles of watercolor painting that follow a traditional approach – mine is not one of them! I like to explore and experiment in a fun and fast way so that it is like playing with color. My techniques are loose and fluid and allow you to find your own way and style. I want the paint to express itself and show its personality. This style of painting is about letting go and freeing up!
