Straight line kolam step by step images

There are a number of images showing in detail the steps involved in drawing this kolam.  This was created by me for New Year 2018 and Pongal 2018. 

We can also have these type of traditional designs apart from the the dotted kolam we use.  This kolam can be started free hand or with a 3 by 2 dot pattern to draw the first hexagon.  Three more parallel and bigger hexagons are drawn outside.  

e have padis on six sides covered with a gopuram like pattern.  Rest is filling the design with spirals , dots.  Decorate with a kaavi border as it is one of the traditional kolangal

A small traditional and beautiful kolam with lines.


Using lines and free hand patterns including birds we can get beautiful kolam designs also.  The image below is an example.  The floral designs can also be considered as the tail of the peacock like bird.  The idea is the birds admire the beauty of their tails !
