How were ships of the Swedish Navy painted in the period 1900 – 1914 ?

I have seen one illustration which has a light grey (white ?) hull and yellow funnels. Was this standard ?

Were smaller ships painted differently ?

I'm on phone but was looking these up for Nef, sea grey with mid green waterline hull if that helps, will try to find pics later

Light grey and yellow funnel sounds correct with models ive seen at the Swedish naval museum just outside Sthlm
