Is it done by watercolors?

No, it’s not watercolors. Actually, I made the lineart with ink, then scanned it; then proceeded with digital colouring (flat), then printed on cream-coloured paper; then used colored pencils (for the shades) over the printed resut. I’ve just published a scheme of my process here: xixdeviant.deviantart.com/art/…

Very like a Mucha's work, but softer, and a little bit more modern style (the hair and the silhouette). I can see the herbs for the medicinal composition. I wish I could draw like you !

You are very welcome ma'am! I haven't been addressed as sir before! I wish more people would as it gives me an inflated sense of self importance!

Wow, this is a great representation of his style. If this was a label I would buy whatever it was selling.

As Khanemis said, I agree. I can see where you took from Mucha. It looks like his work except for the colors (slightly brighter from his usual palette, but I can't say how) and the use of a more modern aesthetic woman (more athletic). Very nice work. Is it watercolors? Was it done for someone specific? Who is the model?

Thank you so much, your analysis about the stylistic differences is very acute!
It's not watercolors, but pencil, ink, digital colouring (flat) and, finally, pastels (for the shades) over the printed result.
It was done for nobody else, it's basically a vision of a poster for some sort of 19th century-medicine (more precisely, I chose plants assigned to the cure of the anemia: cress, nettle, wormwood, dogrose berries…) – the whole concept is about the duality between flourishing beauty and weakness/vulnerability.
Unfortunately, the model doesn't exist - at least in the real world - she's only a product of my own mind (sigh).

Very nice. If this is solely your work without any actual parts copied from original posters by Mucha, than I have to tell that you learned his style perfectly while giving something from yourself to whole conception. You captured Mucha's spirit through elegance of lines and thoughtful use of floral ornaments. On the other hand you have used thiner liner and the girl is slightly different than his usual models which is what it makes your work. Thumb up.

Thank you so much, you've been way too generous! The style and the lines of Mucha are so pure that are really hard to imitate. Actually, this is overall a personal work, but a part of the drapery and the left arm were loosely inspired by Mucha's poster "Roses" (1898), while the bottle and the crosses were inspired by another Mucha's poster "La Trappistine" (1897), one of my favourites.
