With a busy pregnancy schedule and pregnancy concerns, pregnant women often find it hard to draw pictures.
But here are a few simple tips to help you draw them.
First, don’t forget to use black, as this is a good colour for a pregnant lady.
Second, use a background that’s flattering to the person who is pregnant.
If it’s a woman in a bright, colouring-free, relaxed pose, then you might want to leave it off.
Third, if you’re drawing a pregnant person in a wheelchair, don´t try and get her in the pose that way, as she will likely struggle to balance.
Finally, don`t use black and white.
If you need to, a colour will be perfect for a picture of a pregnant girl, but a black and red background will be too bright and distract from the fact that the pregnant lady is pregnant, and will make it harder for you to focus on her.
