I would recommend that you always buy a good quality watercolour paper at 140lb weight minimum and the best quality brushes you can afford. I would also recommend you buy pan watercolours (blocks) rather than tubes as there is then less waste.
When painting always make sure you are sat comfortably and that you have the best light possible and just play around and have fun!
Experience is the name everyone gives to their mistakes.
