Caygill Early Springs

My friend asked me which Early Spring she would be.  You can see her color analysis at my portfolio.  The four Early Spring categories are not described much beyond their adjectives.  Truth be told, Caygill used a lot of adjectives for subtypes without describing how they were defined.

They are all listed as having the same underlying paint colors (see below).  My friend's eyes are more likely to be considered Floral Spring in Caygill's categories, because that is where you see Raw Umber added.  However, a few of the images of the Early Springs do appear to have hazel eyes, so it's confusing.

I named her fan "Light on Water" and so I pick the Water-Lily, Fresh.
