One such design below. It is with a 15 dot to 8 dot grid The dots are idukku pulli type - meaning that after a row of dots is placed the next one is placed between the previous row of dots and below or above. Consequently, the number of dots reduce by one in each row - 15, 14, 13, 12 till 8 dots in this case. The plain and white kolam. White kolam designs are beautiful in their own way and are widely used in Tamil Nadu, daily.

In the kolam with colours I have chosen to hide the ribs drawn on the floral patterns by adding the colours. We can also add the ribs again after filling the colours. This image represents an intermediate stage of the kolam design after drawing the 7 floral patterns. The design at the centre and the patterns connecting the dots between the inner designs and the outer flowers are drawn. The image below shows the dot grid for reference.

The image on the right shows an intermediate stage of the kolam after completing the 7 floral designs. Maharastrian rangoli The first kolam in this series of kolam inspired by Maharastrian rangoli - a lotus design. It is common lotus kolam design that is drawn during Margazhi and Pongal in Tamil Nadu.

Obviously even when I try designs I am not very familiar with there will be some influence of my style. After all as my husband says - Regimentation suppresses creativity. So this lotus design is my kolam inspired by Maharashtrian rangoli. Then identify the central dot in the last row and draw the petals of the lotus as shown.

Actually once we start this rangoli, the dots will seem to show up and ask to be connected!. After drawing the four lotus patterns the remaining patterns at the four corners can be drawn according to our imagination.

Draw a petal at the base of each lotus to make it appear more natural. There are four remaining dots at the centre. I have used them with some circles and dots as shown. Fill with pink lines for the lotus. This may be useful if you are looking for a simple but grand Tamil Puthandhu kolam. The result a beautiful kolam design. Through simple steps and simple patterns it is possible to get beautiful designs in this type of rangolis.

I hope to add more of them in future. Though it is with 15 dots it is relatively easy to draw. The patterns below the neck that represent the wings!

The central floral pattern is added. Then the birds and flower at the centre are connected with dots as shown. Finally floral petals are also added between the birds. The beauty of this kolam lies in the symmetry of the patterns. Interested in seeing how it is drawn with colours. This design, initially was to be butterflies and flowers combination but I changed it to birds and flowers pattern as I drew it.

The level of difficulty I presume is medium. They should give an idea of how the kolam is drawn from the dot grid stage. This is a simple floral design. Draw the 6 flowers around the central flower. The gaps between the flowers are converted into simple designs using the remaining dots. Finally fill all the designs with colour rangoli powder to get the image shown below. The trick is to get the floral petal patterns at the centre and on the outside, right to get a beautiful effect on the rangoli.

The colours only enhance the beauty of the design. Choosing colours can be left to our imagination for general floral designs but for specific flowers like rose, lotus and hibiscus there are restrictions. The black and white images show two stages of the kolam.

A flower kolam for Margazhi. A simple floral petal central design surrounded by some flowers and leaves. Then draw the central floral designs.

Connect the designs as shown. Fill with parallel lines of different colours. The pattern at the centre is a simple floral petal design and this I have used in some rangoli designs.

The remaining dots are also used to get more flower and leaf patterns to get the rangoli. Two intermediate steps of the colourful design above are shown to give an idea of how the kolam progresses from the dot grid to the final stage. As shown in the first image the floral patterns on the four corners are drawn and then the dots between the floral patterns are used with a pattern as shown. Of course we have the liberty to change the designs according to our imagination.

For example some leaf patterns can also be drawn in these dots. The next image shows how the dots at the middle are used. Three dots on each side remain as shown.

Refer to the final image with colours to complete the kolam design. The next one is with 7dots to 7 dot pattern. A simple floral pullikolam design. Again the outer designs are drawn and the remaining dots used to get the central design. The outer patterns can also be converted into birds or butterflies - the patterns on the four edges - as is obvious from the image.

The images in black and white show two intermediate steps of the kolam design. The first one shows the dot pattern with the outer floral designs in three stages. The second image shows how the central designs are drawn.

They give an idea as to how the kolam design progresses. I have used hibiscus and rose buds for the design. Draw the flowers on the corners then the central pattern and then add the roses to get the final design. The roses with pink colour added will look cute. The kolam with colours is in Rangolisansdots two images for the video show intermediate steps to give us an idea A representation of a flower basket in a kolam through three images.

The dot pattern is 7 to 3 idukku pulli. I have used two parallel lines to depict the basket so that it appears more natural Kolam with rose buds The kolam on the top has rose as a theme. A simple design that can be drawn free hand or using a 5 by 5 dot template. Draw the square or rhombus. Use the dots inside to get the floral petals and the stalks of the roses. Use the dots outside there will be three to get the leaf designs and around the remaining dot draw the roses to get this rose kolam design.

The image on the left shows the initial step in this kolam Now some rangoli with 6 dots Flower kolam design with 6 dots pattern The next one on the top is also a rose kolam design but with the dot pattern 6 by 6 so it is relatively simple, only drawing the rose buds with curved lines needs some practice.

Start from one corner, draw the stalk and the leaves and finally complete the rose buds. Red rose buds have been drawn in this kolam design. The images in black and white show the kolam at the beginning and at an intermediate stage before addition of colours. This may give an idea as to how to proceed with this kolam.

This one is a kolam with a dot pattern 6 dot by 6. Frankly, this design is not what I planned but as I stated many times the influence of free hand designs makes me change the design while drawing. A kolam with four "angry birds" says my daughter! Akshaya Tritiya is considered by many to be one of the most auspicious days for starting a new venture.

It falls in the month of Chaitra in April-May on the third day after the new moon day. Akshaya means lasting for ever. Tritiya refers to the third day after new moon. He was stricken with poverty. His wife asked him to seek the help of Lord Krishna. The options are many. They are called chukkala muggulu in Telugu.

It is usually drawn as a tortoise shape but I have used some floral patterns instead of a tortoise. Though it is a relatively big kolam and occupies some space it is commonly drawn during Margazhi at the entrance. The dot grid is 11 to 6 in between dots i. First 11 dots are placed the next rows of dots are placed below and above between two dots in the 11 dot row so that we get 10 dots.

Similarly when the next row of dots is placed between any two dots we get nine dots and so on. This is a simple line rangoli design with hexagons and few lines so that the result is rhombuses.
