Simple deepam kolam with dots
The next two images show the tricky part in this kolam. Extend the lines on all six sides using the projected edges of the star. The lines should actually appear as a continuation of the line in the star. We should careful that there is no change in the direction
Once this done carefully and achieved the rest is easy.
Connect as shown to get the diya bases
Draw the deepam patterns and some decorations to complete the rangoli
Simple diya rangoli with 5 to 3 dots for Diwali
The central dot is decorated with a spiral pattern with dots all around.
Since I felt that the kolam appeared incomplete I enclosed all the deepam designs with a border as shown in the next image.
We can add colours for festivals like Navratri, Diwali and Karthigai Deepam. If we use it for daily kolam , white kolam is sufficient. If we would like to draw it for Friday , a kaavi border is required.
Next form two triangles, by connecting the lower end ( with the photo below as reference ) of the bigger line at the bottom to the upper end of the smaller line at the bottom.
Next connect the lower end of the smaller line at the bottom to the upper end of the bigger line . So that we get a line pattern that is continuous and also two triangles are formed
Repeat the steps on the two lines on the left side of the image and the result is the pattern in the picture below.
The rest is easy , add diya designs to complete the rangoli
A simple and beautiful design is ready for Ugadi or Tamil New Year's day. Such simple designs can also be part of our Navratri kolam gallery because we need quite a few for the nine days. Diya rangoli designs are also popular during Diwali and Karthigai Deepam ( Diwali of Tamil Nadu )
Two pairs of lines horizontal and vertical intersect as shown. The six areas formed are filled with straight lines. Connect edges of the pairs of straight lines with inclined lines to form the basic.
The rest is as we do usually. Add diya designs to make a deepam kolam , spirals and dots decorate the kolam further.
