I sell a watercolor kit and think it's a heck of a deal. It has everything you need and you get the lessons free if you buy a kit.

Your own supplies will work just fine too! Here's what I'd recommend:

- Paint: Winsor & Newton Professional (Budget pick: Winsor & Newton Cotman)
- Brush: Sakura Koi Water Brush
- Paper: Arches Cold Press (Budget pick: Canson Cold Press)
- Palette: Basic folding palette

If you want to splurge on one thing, get Arches Cold Press paper. It's what I include in my kit and it makes a big difference.
