Colour from the Season - Blackbird eggshell blue

Blackbird eggshell blue may vary from bird to bird and egg to egg, I don't know about that but I'm sure about the colour of this particular shell that I found while walking with friends on Torrington Common. Though it has equal percentages of Cyan and Yellow, an extra 2% of Black tipped it back slightly (I reckoned) from green towards blue - so that's what I named it.

I'm afraid that little bird didn't make it - listening to Gotye on a springy Spring day...

...from my seasonal colour sample notebook.
