For Molly’s birthday, Sherlock takes her out to wine & dine her. Being Sherlock, he doesn’t really understand the point of going out to eat but he does enjoy a reason to dress up, and quite like surprising Molly when she assumes he won’t remember that it is, in fact, her birthday.
Some time ago I found that famous photograph of Louise Brealey (I’ve researched the web but couldn’t find the credit for the author) and I felt like drawing. I had a nice time, and it also reminded me how difficult it is to paint beautiful women ;-)
(I’ve learned that yesterday was her birthday, so -a late- happy birthday, Loo :)
