75 Day Sketch Challenge: Day 51

My birthday and my husband's are just one day apart, so we always enjoy celebrating together, usually with lunch or dinner out (plus gifts, of course!) This year we decided to try a new Japanese steakhouse in our area. I was up for being adventurous and trying the sushi, while he ordered the hibachi lunch with steak, scallops, and vegetables.

5-1/2" x 8-1/2", ink and watercolor in Stillman & Birn Alpha series sketchbook

Everything was so pretty I wanted to sketch it, but my appetite got the better of me, and I decided to just snap a photo to paint from later on. Just looking at this sketch now makes me want to go back! Mmmm, it was all so good.

It was a very happy birthday for both of us, and no matter how many years go by, one thing never changes - he'll always be one year older than I am!
