 Best rangoli for competition no. 1 


I have used just two colours to shade.  Please note that I draw free hand designs without any aids.  I do not draw the pattern first with a piece of chalk.  If we practice regularly we can get better at symmetry.

I just love the orange colour used in the periphery.  Actually this is what makes the rangoli stand out in what is otherwise a simple pattern.

Best and easy rangoli no 3 


A very popular rangoli on social media particularly YouTube few years ago.  Making use of the square base at the centre is an easy way to create a rangoli for festival.  I have not used any colours.  What we have to observe is the absence of any joints in the curved lines.  If we draw without joints the beauty of a rangoli is enhanced manifold.

There should be at least one rangoli with diya or lamp patterns since Diwali is after all a festival of lights.  It is probably one of the easiest and simplest diyas rangoli with dots.  Hope you will try it.
