did you draw it and then use watercolors over it?

I did! Drew it as an initial sketch with a biro actually then thought I rather liked it and watercoloured it :)

Sorry biro is like a Bic pen if you know what one of those is -the most stanndard pens for writing notes :P
And the paper was nice and thick but it was smooth -not for water colours at all and it did warp a lot - and it was actually in a sketchbook
...must have taken close to 10mins maybe 15? :P

Love it! Looks like the sort of thing a traveler might sketch if he was wandering through the Shire. :D
