Rangoli sans dots literally means Rangoli without dots ( in case I have not written earlier ). However Rangoli-sans-dots will have designs without dots, with dots and a few arts and crafts ideas and my (in)experience in parenting and relationships. I will also try some designs that can be drawn with a dot pattern and the same designs free hand. This image above is a free hand rangoli with three butterflies around a flower. So far as rangoli designs are concerned I think it not necessary to have the complete pattern and hence some tendrils around the flower to show that it is a creeper. I have drawn a bigger butterfly with two smaller ones on either side. This design cannot be drawn with dots (exact replica ) because of the lack of symmetry.
The next rangoli in this series on butterflies in the image above Again a free hand version with a flower with four petals at the centre. The white dots in green representing the centre of the flower. Due to the nature of the rangoli design with long petals I have drawn slim butterflies with elongated bodies. However filling the colours has ensured that the resulting design is beautiful. This rangoli on the left is again on this theme - butterfly and is actually an improved version of a rangoli drawn with leaves and flowers in one of the earlier posts. Here I have added some elements of nature, leaves, flowers and butterflies to get a simple but cute and beautiful rangoli design, drawn free hand of course.
The next rangoli in this series on butterfly rangoli designs. It is combination of butterflies, flowers and leaves. First draw the star shape with two inverted triangles. Between any two sides draw the butterfly designs in blue and yellow ( I am not aware of such a butterfly in nature but give some allowance for my imagination!). Between two butterflies draw the flowers and leaf patterns and add suitable colours to complete the design. A simple rangoli with nature as theme (butterflies, flowers and leaves are congruous and hence suitable for a theme ) for competitions or for festivals. Of course it can be developed further from here. if there are no constraints.
