Leanne Venier is an international award-winning artist who first started painting 8 years ago. Within the first few months of learning to paint, she discovered how to use color to consistently tap into Flow state during her painting process, and her vibrant and colorful healing abstracts began appearing on the canvas.
A Munsell key is provided for the 800 samples in the two-volume edition of the Horticultural Colour Chart (HCC) published 1939/40 by the British Colour Council in cooperation with the Royal Horticultural Council. The charts are known also as the Wilson Colour Charts. References are included for keys published for other color charts.
