Rangoli Designs

Rangoli is an Indian folk art drawn on the floor with rangoli powders or paste. Rangoli is regionally known as Kolam, in Tamilnadu, Muggulu in Andhrapradesh, and Rangavalli in Karnataka. There are hundreds of rangoli designs in iKolam.com, created by members from all over the world.

This is the Valentine's Rangoli I did for Valentine's Day but due to a busy schedule I was unable to upload it. Hope you all like this. Dot count is based on the pattern of the rangoli.
Rani's third anniversary announcement triggered a quick time check regarding others' anniversaries and hence this celebratory-champagne kolam! :love: We're celebrating some of our long-term members' anniversaries here at ikolam! I need to start mentioning from a few of our members that have been actively posting here for the past seven years! I'll then mention members that have been with us for six years, five years, four, and then three. Since it is already past 12am where I live, I'm going to write the names in the morning. But you're more than welcome to guess out the names/yrs here in comments to have some fun. :D The floor is wooden, the medium is rice paste, the coloring at the bottom is colored sand. At the top you will see the bottles colored as champagne bottles in Photoshop. Hope you like it. :) In the meantime, cheers to you, you and you!

Another of my blossoms collection. Today my maid did not turn up. So settled for this simple kolam.
Tried Mohanaji's pattern on the paper with colored pencils. I've used one more level other than Mohanaji. Here is the level of complexity: n = 0, no of lines = 0, no of dots = 1 n = 1, no of lines = 1 (1 green), no of dots = 5 n = 2, no of lines = 5 (4 green, 1 pink), no of dots = 25 n = 3, no of lines = 9 (4 green, 4 pink, 1 blue), no of dots = 61 n = 4, no of lines = 13 (4 green, 4 pink, 4 blue, 1 purple), no of dots = 113 n = 5, no of lines=17, (4 green, 4 pink, 4 blue, 4 purple, 1 orange) no of dots = 181 Thank you for the workout, Mohanaji.
A quick not so clean try of Mohanaji's rangoli on the wall, with colored chalk! We had fun trying this pattern both on the wall and the paper. The picture isn't clear enough since I had used pastel colored chalk on light colored wall. I've added two levels other than what's found on Mohanaji's pattern. Here is the level of complexity: n = 0, no of lines = 0, no of dots = 1 n = 1, no of lines = 1 (1 green), no of dots = 5 n = 2, no of lines = 5 (4 green, 1 pink), no of dots = 25 n = 3, no of lines = 9 (4 green, 4 pink, 1 blue), no of dots = 61 n = 4, no of lines = 13 (4 green, 4 pink, 4 blue, 1 red), no of dots = 113 n = 5, no of lines = 17 (4 green, 4 pink, 4 blue, 4 orange, 1 purple), no of dots = 181 n = 6, no of lines=21 (4 green, 4 pink, 4 blue, 4 orange, 4 purple , 1 light green) no of dots = 265
Dear friends...a small padikolam design in my lobby for your views.
Thank you each and everybody for your amazing wishes...you helped make it a very special day
This chikku kOlam is inspired by the one submitted by sUrya K. This is the next level to her work. Also instead of keeping each of the wavy lines separate, I joined them. This has 13 lines. The dot pattern can be described in two ways - 8x8 square or 1 to 15 vertical one above the other. The levels of complexity are described below: n = 0, no of lines = 0, no of dots = 1 n = 1, no of lines = 1 (1 green), no of dots = 5 n = 2, no of lines = 5 (4 green, 1 pink), no of dots = 25 n = 3, no of lines = 9 (4 green, 4 pink, 1 blue), no of dots = 61 n = 4, no of lines = 13 (4 green, 4 pink, 4 blue, 1 red), no of dots = 113 Using this data, find out the no of lines and dots for the next levels. lakshmI ma'am, you give lot of such problems on FB. This is an exercise for you I am dedicating this pattern to all young girls and boys (may their tribe increase) who have interest in the traditional art of rangavalli or kOlam with dots. Regards! - mOhana
