Wading into the heated waters of the bath, the steam-filled air carries the fragrance of scented oils as firm hands provide a sensual release for taut muscles.

I was approached a few months ago to do a commissioned work. The only guidelines were that it be historical, large, and feature four guys. Having considered the Roman baths as a setting many times in the past, I decided it was perfect for the basis of this work.

The Baths presented a few challenges for me. For one, it was larger than any I had worked on in the past. And while this meant it took longer for me to complete, it also was too large for me to scan myself. I also decided to use pastel board, something I had never worked with before, and was not used to. But I am pleased with the results, and more importantly the customer is very happy.
