In the picture of it on Goodreads I can't see any yellow at all!!! If you have the real book in front of you and it looks yellow enough then go for it 🙂

I have a copy of the hardback Phrynne, it looks like there’s sunlight on the ground & in the trees/bushes as well her hair has golden highlights but think I’ll continue to hunt for a book where the colour is more prominent 😉

Hehe! Thanks for that, I thought I might be able to go either colour (particularly blue or green), but wanted to have my inkling confirmed. :)

Brenda wrote: "I'd say blue or green, not yellow though. :)"

I was thinking blue or green more so than yellow too, Brenda. :) I'll probably go green as I have something else in mind for the blue irises. :)

Thanks to both of you for your assistance. :)

Tien is probably using Tineye Clare. I can't find my link at the moment but if no one else supplies it I will look later. I haven't actually asked for that level of preciseness in this challenge though:) If you feel your books represent the right colours then that's okay:)

As Phrynne said, I did use tineye. There was a cover that I thought oh, yellow! but tineye said brown & white etc so I decided to rate all the colours with tineye ;p

If you do use tineye, Clare, make sure to untick the box where it says "Exclude background color" (it's at the bottom of the list of colours after you "extract colors")
