I recently found this short video of how to get started in watercolors with a painting of a tropical sunset. The supplies you need are minimal and the technique is simple, so you don't need to feel at all intimidated to try it. This instruction is for beginners to get started.
To get started you'll need watercolor paper or pad, one flat watercolor brush, a smaller watercolor brush, a Sharpie marker, and a selection of watercolor paints.
