Ganapati rangoli

Raksha Daryanani's picture

This was the first ever rangoli made by me, from Rice grains. Its a ganesha surrounded by a flower. My friend saw this rangoli and asked me to make hers around the havan kund. Hope you all like it!

Rangoli: Ganapati rangoli

Oh, so this was your starter rangoli! It is elegant, beautiful, and Ganesha looks very pleased to be seated on such a comfortable place. Thank you for sharing your artistic work with all of us. Smile

Multicoloured Ganesha has stolen the hearts. Couldn't believe it that this is your first attempt.. Well Done...

To start with a Ganesha rangoli it self is a good sign. Ganesha looks very happy sitting in your Malar(flower) Simhaasan. Nice coloring. Can we expect more such work from you?

Thanks again for the compliments and encouragement everyone! I used liquid food colours for the rice; all you have to do is take 1 kilogram of rice, add about 3 drops of food colour and mix it in with about 3 to 5 drops of water in order to spread the colour evenly (depending on how dark you want the colour ofcourse). I will try to make another rangoli soon, haven't done it in a while. I'll surely post it!

We call this " pillayaar suzhi!" An auspicious beginning. Very neat and painstaking work. Keep it up!

Raksha maam Ganesha design has come out very nice and very neatly done by you... expecting to see more from u

a very pleasingly coloured Ganesha. Maybe you should have used some strokes for a little detailing like the folds of the cloth and his trunk etc which would have made this more complete - just a humble suggestion from me Smile

அழகிய கணேஷர் கோலம் வண்ண வண்ண கலர்களால் அலங்கரிக்கப்பட்டு இருப்பது மிகவும் நன்றாக இருக்கிறது. வாழ்த்துக்கள். சுற்றியிருக்கும் தீபம் மேலும் அழகு சேர்க்கிறது.

your friends idea worked.
But u must have used same color for all petals.. so that it might have distinguished the flower and ganesha.. Now everything got mixed up.

To highlight some thing background should be kept calm.. i.e; your flower should be same color in all petals..
this elegants the main picture in middle, thats our ganesha.
Hope u understood what i said and try fro the next time.
