AHHHH...I love to paint pots. Love it love it. This is actually watercolor gouache which allowed me to lay the red and the yellow in after the leaves since it is an opaque watercolor. It blends great. I just might start to incorporate gouache for all my watercolors. It's brighter and I really like it. We calligraphers, use gouache a lot for adding color to our letters because it is opaque and can go over backgrounds (as long as it is not watercolor--it bleeds).
