This selection of Stockmar watercolours is based on the natural graduation of the twelve-part colour-cicle, based on Goethe's colour circle. They include the 3 primary colours red, blue and yellow and possess a high spectral purity and transparency.
Children are spontaneous painters. Very early in life they express themselves in pictures. They at first use colour as a means of expression, and here it is the feeling of the colour that plays an important role. Painting is greatly significant for a child's development. By consciously giving shape to their world of impressions, children deal with and internalize their own experiences. And they experience their creative works as confirmation of their abilities.
For the beginner I would suggest starting with just one of the primary colours at a time.
