I would like to learn how to watercolour, what do I need and where do I start?

Im searching for the tools and materials to buy from Amazon. Any good starter sets or bundle I should look at?

i.e. What brushes do I need? What kind of paper do I need to buy? What else do I need?

Thank you. I'm really inspired, can't wait!

Products Im looking at:
A palette something like this (having separated places to mix the colours is a plus, right? I'm really goofy!)

And what do you think of a set like this? Anything important missing?

On your original list everything but the palette look good for the price.

I would go for a palette with more places to put the paint and more area to mix. I can't see wanting to hold the thing in your hand for watercolor painting, like that one looks like it's designed for.

Once you've used up the paper or the paint, you can look for something better. If you don't like the brushes, you can get better ones too. I can't see starting out with brushes that cost $40 each.
