Nice & beautiful strokes ...all the best

Though a familiar motif, still nice to see. The strokes are easy and effortless. Some more red clay would have enhanced the beauty. Photographing this at some other time of the day could also have improved the looks. At the moment, the northeastern portion could be barely seen. If you enjoy in what you do, you are certainly a winner If you excel in your efforts, you are certainly a winner Good luck! Regards! - mOhana

simple & neat...missing colors....draw the top border after completing the main rangoli, so that it can be matched appropriately to get decorations at the center.

Beautiful dotted kolam The drawing is neat and clean, Diyas in different shapes looking are very attractive. Why you didnot color this kolam? Just left it to our imagination? Anyhow nice presentation. Poto could have been taken avoiding the sun's glare. rajamma

Ms.Laskshmi2, I do have a suggestion; try using the standard rangoli powder instead of using rice flour. If the consistency of the flour is that of fine flour (smooth to the touch), the lines most likely are not going to be continuous. The rangoli powder has a coarser texture, and is easy to "draw" with. Ofcourse, practicing helps too. In no time, you would be making beautiful rangolis with straight as well as curvy lines :)
