How to make this rangoli?
This is the ultimate in simplicity. Using a 6 number rounded brush and a bottle of lemon yellow acrylic paint (Fevicryl in this case), I started at the center with an upward pointing small triangle. A reverse triangle superimposed on the previous one completed the star in the center.
A dot in the center completed the Ganesh yantra in the center.
Next came the three petals joining the corners of the upward pointing triangle.
A half leaf shape is the next whirl. The shape of the leaf came first. Filled in two lines between the leaf and petal shapes.
Now for the three tendrils, pointing outwards from the joint between the leaves.
Last come the diya (lamp) shape in a single stroke without lifting the brush.
