Paisley Rangoli – 3

Mango design, fabric design, big kolam

A kolam done long ago with my favourite element, “The Paisleys” . Its commonly known as “Mango Design”, as it resembles the shape of mango in an inverted position, though it’s shape is compared with Indian Pine cone.
I have drawn kolams with paisleys and I think I have tried to replicate a design of mine done in the recent past and the kolam is in the link below.

Paisley’s Kolam

I started with a simple base design and extended with paisleys. For shading I added lines and that gave a different ambiance to the display. Though its a single colour kolam, but giving detailing within the elements make a difference on a whole. If the lines had been replaced with cross lines, then it would have got another look.
