Drywall Finish Type ( name )

Looking for the name of the type of finish in the pics. Searching I came across a name called Spanish Stucco but none of those pictures looked very close to this. The areas that are thin have a feel like the drywall surface and seem to possibly just have a coat of paint.

That is just a random swirl using a flat trowel. Not really a legitimate finish that has a name as far I know. It is kind of a low-budget quick way out type of application.

And wait until you have to repair a patch
Even if you are on the right track, you will still get run over if you just sit there.

That does seem like just a swirl pattern created by a trowel. Not sure if there's an actual name for the pattern though.
