Para Para Paradise Watercolors


It’s been a while that I’ve let out my inner child through the use of colour and spontaneous creativity.

Omer DeSerres has this knack of forcing me to buy something new from it every time I set one tip-toeing foot in it, however, so when I found myself at the cashier holding a set of watercolor pencil crayons and a notebook of French pages, I felt skeptic. “Really?” I thought to myself. “These look like ordinary pencil crayons. Do I really believe after drawing on the paper, then dipping a paintbrush in water and smearing it on the page, that the colours will melt like paint?”

Surprisingly, they did. Not as easily as paint but certainly they exceeded my expectations.

The purpose of this video is not to boast any drawing skills, as these are not representative of the drawings I usually do. It is the methodology of the video’s progress, how color by color adds up to each individual image, precisely representing how small incident plus small incidents accumulate over time to result in a beautiful life worth living…. this idea has been in my head for a while. (Also, the song was ingrained in me and I needed a venue to let it out.)

Hopefully the next time I upload a video similar to this, it will contain more depth and more attention to detail. This first time, it was mainly an experiment… and a really fun, time consuming yet motivating one at that. 🙂

Thank you for watching!
