Simple white rangoli designs for Diwali

 I have shared these rangoli with colours elsewhere in this blog.  I am sharing them here so that you can colour them for Diwali festival according to your imagination.  You may also use them for vasal (entrance ) kolam if you are looking for some intricate designs  -  Circular rangoli image no. 1

Using floral petals as the base and creating a kolam with various motifs , patterns is a popular type of  without chukki rangoli designs.  We can use 8, 16 or 32 petals.  64 petals are also possible .  However 32 petal pattern is itself intricate for which we have to apply lots of concentration.  Thin lines are required to ensure the pattern is compact.

Rangoli design no. 3   Complex may not be the correct definition for the pic shown below.  Drawing small patterns with rangoli powder comes with practice.

The pic below shows an intermediate step.  Like many free hand rangoli even this can be used as a small rangoli . The design after completion is shown above.  White rangoli designs can also be used as colouring activity for kids.

Some of you may be aware that I share rangoli videos on Facebook, YouTube and Instagram.  I share some interesting comments and feedback I get there on my blog.

Recently,  I had this comment for one of my videos

"Coming here first time. Amazing ...authentic... alignment ....attractive....accolades pouring unto to you our dear artist . Purely divine utterly beautiful .  Background music also synced so divinely.....Lovely experience.....I love Rangolisansdots " 

 I have shared some of the adjectives that she used as an alliteration.
 So far as background music is concerned I  use Carnatic music provided by Facebook.  

Alignment -  I think she refers to symmetry.  For symmetry we should practice without aids to attain near perfection.  Yes near perfection because with this technique we cannot be perfectly perfect.

A famous sitar maestro once said , " If I do not practice for one day ,  I know it.  If I do not practice for a week , the accompanists know it.  If I do not practice for a month the audience knows it.  So I practice daily "

So practice is the secret for symmetry in kolam.
