I would like to be a able to draw (using LaTeX tools) a reasonable approximation to the following image of a Roman column:

enter image description here

I had produced the above using Inkscape (drawing first a bitmap of an imported image and then colorizing it a bit). Later, I made some adjustments to its original proportions.

Any help you may provide in drawing something like this in LaTeX is appreciated, even if it is somewhat less detailed than the above.

Thank you.

    @Dr.ManuelKuehner Hi, kindest. The Mathcha is a tool to draw in TikZ. I think that the tag it is specific to use a external tool. – Sebastiano Mar 6 at 22:27

I have drawn using Mathcha (tool) for your Roman column(s) in LaTeX....They are the only unique pieces that I have left in my museum ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚.

You can choose the colors directly into the code. I remember when I was drawing at my school when I was a student, I used a sanguine pencil. They are not perfect Roman columns like your drawing...but they are very similar.... Here there is the code and the screenshot.

    @Dr.ManuelKuehner Do you like it? :)))) I assure you that Mathcha's tools are very limited...and I thought about it a bit before to create the Roman columns...hahahahah. – Sebastiano Mar 6 at 22:50

    I think it's a good alternative if the drawing is not very systematic and/or you only need one version (and not 100 similar but different versions). – Dr. Manuel Kuehner Mar 7 at 0:13

    @Sebastiano Thank you for your assistance and for this remarkable drawing. – mlchristians Mar 7 at 2:00
  • @Dr.ManuelKuehner Hi, I am agree with you...I have only changed the pattern of the internal of the column to have a different rounded rectangle. – Sebastiano Mar 10 at 22:45
