Insisting that not only children should relish the joy that is a box of sharp color pencils, The School of Life has released a lovely set—albeit a somewhat grown-up version. The 12-piece The Psychology of Color pencil set spans the regular hues, but instead of being labeled with the brand or the color name, each is emblazoned with a deeper and more thought-provoking word. Each color is matched with a feeling or memory and they are all explained in the booklet about the psychology of color.
Evidently, orange is connected with vitality; green with sanity and realism; while ambiguity is most closely associated with purple. Whether doodling on a notepad or creating your latest masterpiece, working with these pencils is sure to inject a little extra imagination and inspiration into your sketches.
The Psychology of Color pencil set is available online from The School of Life for £18.
