This selection of Stockmar watercolours is based on the natural graduation of the twelve-part colour-circle, in accordance with Goethe's theory of colours.
The Farbkreisfarben (colour-circle paints) are watercolours based on Goethe's colour-circle. They include the primary colours red, blue and yellow and possess high spectral purity and transparency. With these three colour-circle colours, the complete colour-circle can be created. They can be used in all usual ways and are suitable for all known watercolouring techniques. Stockmar watercolours are ideal for transparent painting. They are produced from gum arabic and the finest light-resistant colour pigments, have a very high yield-value and remain completely water-soluble when dry. The colour tones have been chosen so that they can be mixed to yield all intermediate shades without losing their brilliance and intensity. Mixed with white, the watercolours can be used for non-transparent painting.
