I sketched it with a hb pencil, then went over the sketch with a fine tipped marker, and finished with watercolor. The marker was a Sharpie(R) and I like to use them because they seem reliable and convenient. I have a few that are mostly used up and the line is very thin and pale so I use those with a fresh one that has a strong thicker line.
I have to remember to keep the water color thin and let the pen work show through.The only think I am not happy is that the sharpie do not seem to not be totally water proof because there is a little faint bleed when you put the water on, but it is minimal and a clear wash followed by a tissue blot up will deal with it nicely.
