My drawing of the fragmented nozzle of a Byzantine ceramic oil lamp from Pella, Jordan.
Difficult to date due to similarities between lamps from the late Roman through to the Umayyad periods in the region, an estimated 4th-6th century CE date range can be assigned based on similarities between this and dated oil lamps from tombs in the East Cemetery at Pella. #archaeology #pella #jordan #byzantine #oillamp #ceramic #history #drawing #handdrawn #sakurapigmamicron

How to draw a stratigraphic profile: simple version

I was going through my old vimeo account and found this video I made for a follower a year or so ago. She had sent me an ask requesting info about how to draw a strat profile for a homework assignment. It’s by no means an exhaustive class on profile illustration but I figure it might help out someone on fieldschool this year. My follower got an A+ on her assignment so it can’t be half bad! Good luck :)
