PHILOSOPHY...
In art, everybody has strengths in different areas, at different times.
Watercolor, like most mediums, takes a little bit of getting used to. I get frustrated when people say they tried it ONCE, and it was "so hard".  
Once is not enough to understand how the water, paint and paper are going to react to the person holding the tools!
The beauty of watercolor, is the idea that you can work photographically "tight", or so loose, that you may sit down to paint a bouquet of flowers, and end up with a storming ocean wave that gives you way more satisfaction then the intended project!
The actual watercolor in the beginning has to be in charge. If you try to control it too much, with out understanding it, you may end up in a frustrated image of "mud".
  TO learn from this medium, you truly do have to make mistakes, or allow things to happen that were not intended.  Ive seen people, put paint down, and blot it up, so many times that the actual paper has disintegrated in front of them. No matter the quality of materials, there are limits!

QUALITY OF MATERIALS IS just as important as the patience it requires!

SUPPLIES
The long version, on what and why!
PAPER
Watercolor paper is the base of it all. The good stuff is a little pricey, but it is so important while learning the medium, that you understand the thickness, texture, and absorbency.
I will post a list of preferred supplies after my explanation of why.  If you don't want to read all of the reasons at this time, just move forward and print out the list. But after going to your supplier, you may come back to understand the materials a little better.
