HOW TO DRAW A SIMPLE PADI KOLAM

     
     Padi kolams are usually drawn using parallel lines which cross over diagonally or at right angles.  They may start from a dot or a square and form basic structures such as square, triangle, circle, hexagon, pentagon, swasthik or a crossed diagonal.  A padi kolam can be enlarged by adding parallel lines joining the preceding ones.  Padi kolams are usually decorated by drawing lotuses and artistic motives around the pattern. The centre of a padi kolam is always filled with small designs like a sun, moon or a star.  These patterns are more of an abstract nature.
