I find these paler Whitefriars colours quite difficult to ID in person - let alone from a photo when the colours aren't always accurate and true to life.

I think your swan could be either sea green, ocean green or shadow green - or quite possibly none of them!  Might give you something to start looking with anyway.

Hi,
Looks like it could be twilight, but if you do go to whitefriars site, on the very first home page there is a section along the headings 'Learn' if you go into that and 5th one down is colour guide.
Also look in gallery at Leni Simons she has some lovely swan which may help.

Kieran — See my WF architectural slab for a thick example of Twilight.

Hope that helps,

Hi there kieran
are you a member on the whitefriars site? if so when you go onto the site there is a bar at the top with all the places on the site, click onto 'My whitefriars' which is the the last one on the right, that takes you to the log in page, that then takes you to your activity page (if you havent uploaded anything there wont be much on there) right at the top of the page is a little explanation mark with a circle around it which reads Insert new is this whitefriars, click onto that and it takes you to the upload page.
There is just 3 steps 1; write your description make sure you add measurements (i always copy this as sometimes when picture isnt accepted you lose the text and have to start again), 2; upload your picture from your own file, i use the camera on the lowest possible mega pixel setting and find this the only way to get it to accept it), 3; submit it..
you should recieve an email notification when ever you get a reply, also you cain check it whenever just by going back to the my whitefriars page.
hope this helps
michelle

In your first photo the swan looks Twilight to me, impossible to tell from the second photo.  Emmi
