About Preeti.N's Geometric kolam in kolapodi. : PRINT

Thank you Preeti, for giving this design and the idea to try this with kolapodi.( So Like Lata and Anantharajam, I decided to play with kolapodi) It was not that easy to copy. 1st I put it in paper and colored with color pencil, referring ur site frequently. Then reproduced it on the granite slab.This 3-D, Three-Idiots took 2 days (nearly 4 hours ) for me to complete it. I used the same colors like Preeti to get the same effect.Now I can smile at them with my back pain. I really really want a COMMENT(+ or -) from ALL of you!!

Dotted kolam

Rajammaji, Superb effect with kolapodi. It doesn't look like kolapodi at all. Hats off to your interest in kolams and efforts you take. I like the parrot green and orange very much. These 3-idiots made us enjoy.

It just looks like solid blocks fixed together, awesome 3D effect. U've created the same colors that preethi had given using color pencils, and that truly amazing.

Very well drawn rAjammAjI! prItIji must be happy. It is always a joy to see ones original rangOli drawn by another. This is perhaps the ultimate tribute one artist pays another.

Copying somebody's work is indeed a tribute to the original creator.Giving credit to the original is very very important. So 50% of credit goes to Preeti. She drew this wonderful design and gave the dot count also, to make it easy for me to do the copycat work.But I really enjoyed copying this. Thank you one and all for expressing your nice views about this.( Still awaiting the great commentators'... Judy and Subashini... comments)

Lata can I share some space on that cloud of yours - I seem to be floating at the moment too?? Oh my God!! What a masterpiece this is Rajam?? Hats off to your patience and perseverance. In spite of all the backaches you have, your love for the art has been expressed LOUD AND CLEAR. Excellent symmetry in all aspects - colouring is superb Smile
