Very beautiful colours. The centre with the orange flowers is absolutely perfect. The shading of the purple flowers is good too. The black/brown outline on certain elements of the kolam give it a printed look. :)

The centre design is amazing - looks just like a painting to me.. The orange flowers on the outside border of the centre part of the kolam is really very pretty and unique, leave alone the petal and stamina extensions laid out on the brown.. The fan like flowers are nicely outlined in a dark shade of purple (or is it some other colour?) and the petals are shaded so beautifully. The peacock eye on the outside border is also amazing.. The only things I find out of place are those tiny three petal red flowers on the outer border - they do not seem to gel with the rest - maybe you could have put white twirleys like Lakshmi does. Preethi you have left me speechless and I think you should have submitted this one for the competition instead of the one you did (I find this much better than that one)..

Preethi, wonderful rangoli. I admire the way you have used shading colors for the flowers. It is looking different since you avoided using white outlines.The inner brown design and the outer seven finger like flower have come out very well. Only the blue color portion is not matching with others. This we can find out only after putting. But on the whole a fantastic art work. rajamma

God has become a preeta (satisfied) with preetijI's rangOli. How much thought and imagination has gone into this. The easy fusion of colours and the effortless transition from one area to another in the same flower, the pleasing symmetry are remarkable indeed. Congratulations for a grand display! Regards! - mOhana

Preethi, your rangoli is breathtakingly beautiful! Nice arrangement of so many partially bloomed buds inside the brown flower. Addition of peacock feathers in the outer border adds more beauty to the rangoli. :)

Mind blowing preethi the kolam is extremely elegant and looks as though it is painted. The spreading of colour for the inside flower is so perfect looking as though it is real flowers. I feel sorry if this was your entry for the contest this deserved the best of all.
