Watercolor/gouache. The flowers and leaves are only watercolor. The vase, leaves and background were painted first in gouache, then I painted over the gouache with more watercolor in different hues. The gouache lifted a bit, making the background cloudy and mysterious.
PS Here is a beautiful poem written by another friend when he saw my painting. Thank you Ivan!
A soul has passed that solid grid we all deny with reverent respect to somber, undefined hereafter; my friend, a floating blossom from a bouquet of life, a vase of ample nurture left behind.
