Hydrangea WOYWW

Hello WOYWWer's... how's your Wednesday going?
I've been busy, but then I always am.
But this week is a little more manic than usual. 
I'm about to head off this weekend to celebrate my Brother's birthday (a biggy) so I've been like a headless chicken, trying to get everything done before I leave.
The usual stuff plus enough food for my son and Mufftypup to eat whilst I'm away. 
Yes, that's quite a task!
But I've even surprised myself because in between the madness I've managed to paint!
I've carried on trying to keep the loose style and to be honest I couldn't be any more slack. (Yes I know there's probably a joke in there somewhere... but I'm moving on swiftly)
If I was any more loose I'd unravel.
So as is the WOYWW tradition on a Wednesday to share what we're up to... I'll show you my desk.
Here it is....
We have a few hydrangeas of varying colours, but this one is my particular favourite.
I really enjoyed myself with this one...and here it is finished.
I only spent two days off and on so that must be a record for me.
I used Japanese watercolour paints, Derwent Inktense watercolour pencils and ink to outline.
If you'd like to see more desks throughout the land then click here to visit Julia's link.
But just a word of warning before you do... there may well be some Christmas preparations going on. I'm just hanging on to summer for as long as I can, but I think I'm fighting a loosing battle.
Have fun this Wednesday and thanks for visiting my place.
Hope to see you soon
