Went back to the Mayslake Peabody Estate today for some more plein air painting.  The light was all over the place, which made things interesting.  It started off sunny, then rather abruptly became overcast.  It even drizzled for a few minutes.  Then the sun started to peek out periodically and finally stayed out.  By the hammer of Thor!

But it turned out okay — the changing light made me work fast, which is always best for me, and the overcast conditions, paradoxically, caused me to juice up the paintings with more color to keep myself entertained.   You can really see that in Nos. 4 and 5.
