Her site says knife & brush.. it almost looks like some of that "credit card" painting technique was used.
a site that describes how to use cards for painting.

I am thinking along with the cards and palette knives, a great deal of glazing is going on. That would account for the subtle color shifts in some areas. Also think scumbling is in use here as well, that can give a gentle color shift as well.

Lisa - would you please provide a link for that painting so we can take it down and show only the link? .... unless you have the artist's permission we do not, as a forum, allow this. You'll find our 'rules' here (http://www.wetcanvas.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1357848)
Thanks :)

Lisa, if you want to paint with a completely smooth finish, an airbrush will be great. Just be sure to wear a respirator if you ever decide for an airbrush.
