My favorite “cheat” with watercoloring is heat embossing an image. Watercolors are finnicky and if you paint too closely to something that isn’t dry, the colors will mix and bloom into each other. The raised edges from the heat embossing contains your colors so it doesn’t get messy. Also, underpainting is one of my favorite ways to watercolor because it’s full of color!
