Wow...How did you do that. I mean, what did you use? I can see it is on the floor. Did you use some kind of coloured chalk?
Great work - it makes me want to see more of your work...mmm. I think I will have to have a look through the achives.
Amazing!
Love and Light.

Hi Stew Crowther,

Thanks for your appreciation...I have used colored powder-called "rangoli" in Hindi. There different colored powders available here. Yes you are right,I have done in on the floor, I have drawn the outline in chalk and then colored the figure with rangoli. I have used a mix of red/yellow/orange and white to get the skintone.

Hello Aarti,
That is amazing. I remember now,I used to work with a girl who told me about this. Sounds hard to do.
I will check out more Rangoli from your like.
Thank you for the info.
Love & Light.
Stew.

Rangoli sounds like a wonderful medium--and you have done an amazing job of blending and color choice. Just lovely!

That's beautiful! I'd love to see one of these in person; it must be so much nicer than the prints and things one can get in stores.
