These type of padi kolam use curved lines instead of straight lines , the result a beautiful pattern emerges.

It is a tradition to draw at least two lines either simultaneously or separately

The next step in the rangoli , it expands outwards through curved lines

The position of the hand can be watched in the next two images to draw the pattern.  Though there are many ways to draw a pattern I have tried to follow a simple method to make it easy for those who want to learn.  For those who have knowledge of these patterns , they can be drawn with fewer steps

Spirals and dots decorate the outermost gaps .  As is the norm ,  these designs depend upon our imagination

These beautiful padi kolam can be drawn on Fridays and for Navratri



The next padi kolam for this Aadi masam kolangal is some what tricky and can be complicated for some.  Drawing kolam is a challenge to our dexterity and if we achieve some degree of dexterity it is with practice only there is no rocket science involved !  It is a common art drawn daily and all of us should  be able to do it with practice.

The more we practice , the more graceful we become as our confidence increases exponentially with regular practice, grace and near perfection follow automatically.  The curved lines in the kolam above are beautiful to look and it is a pleasure to draw them too.  Please try !
