Some of the posts including this one are with three or four steps so that beginners or children can practise them on-line. An on-line rangoli drawing project ! To add me to your circles to get updates on rangoli kolam and other art and craft please go to my Google plus profile . My Facebook page is Rangoli sans dots - Facebook .
Before attempting to draw a rangoli, one needs to practise using rangoli powder to draw straight lines and then curved lines. Initially, there may be problems - like the lines may be very thick, may not be continuous, the flow of rangoli powder cannot be controlled. Hence I have added a video to my Channel on YouTube showing how to draw a line using rangoli powder. It is in slow motion and has been taken in four different angles to give the viewers an idea. Hope it is helpful.
All designs are free hand and at present I have also added some rangoli designs using dot grid including two rangoli with 7 dot grid ( very simple lamps designs ) . We can practice to draw rangoli with sketch pen or chalk piece till we become comfortable with drawing with rangoli powder (kolam maavu as we say in Tamil ) and we should try because making with rangoli powder is what makes a rangoli pretty, lovely and any other adjective we can think of for beautiful !
The rangoli in the image below is one of the basic designs that can be used for learning.
Rangoli in the image on the left is also a basic star design. Again, draw two inverted triangles but in this case extend the arms from one edge and connect to the other with curved lines as shown. Draw neat and beautiful curved lines makes the rangoli very attractive though it is a very simple rangoli design. Colourful curved lines parallel to the white design can be drawn to complete and get a colourful design. Or leave it plain and simple.
. Some designs in here should be suitable for kids too !
The image below shows how to draw a floral rangoli design. In the first stage on the top left intersecting lines - four numbers are drawn. From the centre draw curved patterns on either side of a segment of the line to get the floral designs shown in image 2. In the third stage draw v shaped patterns between the petals. Finish the rangoli design as shown in the fourth stage of the image to get a simple floral rangoli design.

The next rangoli a simple design is also a free hand type. The image below shows how the rangoli progresses from two petals to a completed floral design that is further decorated and also filled with colours. shows the final rangoli pattern. After drawing the floral petals at the centre add the longer lines of two different lengths, between the petals to complete the rangoli. It is quite a simple design to teach and to learn!
Another rangoli with 7 dots also using lamp designs in the images below. This design has already been shared in rangoli-sans-dots. Now the white rangoli with steps have been added here because it is a very simple and easy design and hence is relevant here. Place the dot pattern, draw the lamps as shown in the first image, connect the lamps with curved lines as shown in the second image.
Another rangoli in this series of simple rangoli for beginners, in a few steps. The floral petals are drawn and the rangoli developed around it to get the final image shown at the bottom right.
In rangoli designs flowers play an important part - in fact nature plays an important role. It is easy for us to take designs and colours from nature - patterns, designs and colours are there everywhere around us. There are many methods through which floral designs can be represented in a rangoli. I would like to show some of them in Rangoli-sans-dots.
This is the first type where we have two layers of petals - this can be used to represent the petals or corolla that are lobed and have multiple layers of petals. I have shown two layers . We can add more. The two images show the step by step procedure.
This is another version of flower rangoli design with the central portion more pronounced with a single layer of petals ( or corolla ) that are arranged beautifully and symmetrically around the - shall we call it stamen !
Nature is really awesome , isn't it ? These hand drawn patterns are a humble attempt by us ( humans ) to imitate nature. The two images below show the steps for this rangoli
