Can you paint with all the colours of the wind?

As a kid, I loved to paint with those simple Crayola watercolor paint sets. I guess since then I have been enamored with watercolors.

Images above:
1 & 2 both are children's paintings. 3. World map watercolor by Michael Tompsett.

I've been seeing watercolors in a lot of places lately, fashion, photography, home goods, paper, etc. I love the softness it adds to even a bold image. I'm dying to do a project which incorporates this technique.

Examples shown above are (from the top right):
1. Leaf Umbrella Duvet by Masha D’yans.  2. Multi-Colored Watercolor Flowered iPhone cover sold at Coveroo.  3. Wallpaper image via Rosel & Greene.  4.
