Rangoli kolam designs with dots for Pongal , Diwali 

The images are in a random order,  not in the ascending or descending order of the size of the dot grid.  This is a13 to 7 dot flower or poo kolam the shading effect makes the kolam very beautiful.  
If we  do not have colours we can try this shading method

This is an 8 by 8 dot birds kolam ( paravai kolams in Tamil ).  The technique is drawing the tail and the body in smooth movements connecting the dots with curved lines.  Many viewers have asked me how to draw curved lines easily.  The secret is that your hand should be relaxed ,  thinking too much about the shape of the line will make our hand stiff.  Just draw in a relaxed manner.  As they say drawing kolam is like meditation .  I have shown three pictures for the steps to give a clear picture of how the kolam progresses in the tail portion.

Next is 15 to 8 dot design.  It is a very simple idea for a medium sized dot grid.  Only flowers and lamps.  So it can be drawn for Deepavali or Thiru Karthigai.
