Multipetal kolam

rajamma_2's picture

Hridhaya Kamalam Design kolam with dots.Dots kept in straight lines on all the directions of the inner circle
This design is copied from an old Tamil magazine.I didnot do any decoration since I want you all only to enjoy the weaving pattern of the design. I have used only 2 colours. It took some time ( 2 hrs ) to keep the dots and to draw the thin lines connecting them properly. Just tried Adobe Photoshop to give a mosaic floor effect. Wink Hope you will enjoy it.

Srividya, Nice to learn that you are interested in learning this type of kolam. The dot count is, in the innner circle 5 straight dots in 16 rays. In the outer ring again 5 dots starting from the circle in 32 rays/ directins.All the best. Smile

I like this kolam very much Rajamma mam. I too have tried to draw this type of kolam but have always failed Sad I too request you to upload the dotted version, it will be of immense help to learn this pattern.
Eventhough you have mentioned the dot count i am unable to get on it.
