Lotus kolam with dots for Margazhi or Pongal
Some small and simple kolam with 7 dots
This rangoli above has a dot template of 7 by 7. Draw the outer floral designs as shown in the video. Draw the flower at the centre and add the patterns above as shown in the image. Quite an easy and basic rangoli and can be drawn in very little time. It is quite popular on my YouTube Channel. Since it is a very simple design it can be drawn free hand also. This rangoli has been posted on Rangoli of November 2012 as a free hand design. It can be drawn free hand too. The photo above shows some of the steps in drawing this kolam and are self-explanatory. and the two images below show how it can be drawn without using a dot grid ! Easy for small kolam designs using basic kolam patterns.
The dot pattern of the rangoli is 7 by 4. In this case draw the central floral petals. Draw more petals as shown to connect the edges of the central petals. Add simple designs to use up the remaining dots. I have used just one colour, pink and still it is beautiful, isn't it. We start a design either from the centre or from the periphery according to our choice. The first image shows the steps in the beginning for this kolam and the second image shows the kolam nearing completion and these two images give us an idea as to how to draw it
The next kolam is of dot pattern 7 by 7. Draw the floral design on the four corners. Then add the design at the centre. Connect both with some simple designs as shown. It is also a simple rangoli with minimum colours and can be drawn in a few minutes . Draw the central design in blue and connect the edges to the pink floral petals. and use the remaining dots with patterns of your choice. The two images in black and white give us an idea as to how to draw this kolam.
