FIRST A WORD OF ENCOURAGEMENT
Learning to paint take time and practice. If your projects do not turn out the way you hoped they would do not give up. No one is as hard on themselves as a person who has the gift of art. If you are frustrated then GREAT! it proves you have the gift you only need to get your skill up to the level of your talent- which means practice. I have some other how to paint projects in this blog, so come back and try some more. I try to add a couple of projects each month.

Trace the picture onto heavy watercolor paper, if it is too dark to trace through try holding it against a window with the light shining through. If you use a copier you can enlarge the picture and then trace a larger one.
Do not paint the sky a flat blue. Use darker lavenders at the top and sunset oranges and yellows at the bottom.
Put some of the sunset colors in the sea and beach then let it dry.
LET IT DRY
Mix watery brown and fill in the distant island. While it is still wet drop in darker browns and blues to give a silhouette with highlights look.
With back and forth strokes put light blue in the water but only about half of it. leave a lot of parts white and yellow. LET THIS STEP DRY then give a second layer of darker blues so you have light blue highlights and deep blue waves. Leave some of the yellow showing through.
Use a small brush and draw the palm leaves with yellow first then go back and add green in the bottom half of each leaf. Some are brown and hang down. Paint the trunk brown then while it is wet add some blue for darker areas and details.
Use watery yellow and tan colors for the beach. Keep it smooth by the waves. In the Near ground use a small brush to give the sand texture.
