this is my first line kolam - pl give your comments pl
usually eLE (line, without any dots) rangolis are not colored fully, may be just kumkum and haldi at the center...but i tired some coloring....included both as one pic.
"Thamizh puthandu vaalthukal"
This is a line kolam for tamil new year. The basic design for this kolam is from the Meenakshi temple "sudhai sirpam" with naaga design, seen on the roof after being painted newly for the kumbabishekam.
i tried this after seeing the rangoli in our members gallery or in flickr photo kolam tags i could not confirm, [sorry if it belongs to any of our esteemed members].
This kolam is drawn by using two lines with hand.
This ia an amalgamation of free hand and kambi kolam for pongal with a sun symbol and lotus all around.
Line kolams can be tried with different outer designs instead of lotuses.
This is small kolams drawn on a paper, it is useful to beginners.
