Keeping hydrated is one of the most important tasks we have to take care of every day! With how busy life can get, it can sometimes be an easy need to neglect, however.
It can be made much easier when you have a water bottle at your side! Most of us have used one of these before, but it can still be surprisingly tricky to learn how to draw a water bottle.
Luckily, it can be made much easier when you have the right steps to follow!
This step-by-step guide on how to draw a water bottle will guide you through the process of drawing one of these useful hydration tools!
How to Draw A Water Bottle – Let’s Get Started!
In this first step of our guide on how to draw a water bottle, we will be drawing the outline of the bottle itself. We won’t be doing any details yet, but rest assured that we will be adding those in later steps! For now, we will be using some curved lines for the bottle.
The cap of the bottle will be a rounded rectangle with a rim at the bottom, then the bottle will extend down from that and the first of those curved lines will be drawn for the first bulge of the bottle.
Then, it will curve inward and then out again into more curved lines. Finally, there will be several rounded shapes at the base of the water bottle, as shown in the reference image.
Step 2 – Draw some details for the water bottle
You have the outline of your water bottle drawing done, so now we can start to draw the first details in this second step.
The details will be subtle for now, but they will get more complex later on. For now, draw some short curved lines horizontally onto the bottle, and then use some on the lower half.
The details we added will form the label of the bottle as well as adding some shape definition to the bottle. Then, we’re ready to move on!
Step 3 – Keep adding some subtle detail
Continuing on with this guide on how to draw a water bottle, we will be adding even more detail to your drawing. First, you can draw some short, vertical lines onto the cap of the bottle.
These will form the ridges that create friction with your fingers so that you can turn it.
Then, you will be drawing another horizontal line onto the body of the bottle to create the top of the label. Later on you will be able to decorate that label if you would like, but for now we shall move on to the next step.
Step 4 – Keep adding some details
You’re doing a great job on this water bottle drawing! We will continue to add some detail in this fourth step.
As you can see in the reference image, we will be adding some slightly curved vertical lines to the bottle to give it even more shape definition. Details like this are subtle but make a big difference!
In the next step we will add some final details to finish it off before you start to color it in.
Step 5 – Add the final details of this water bottle drawing
It’s almost time for the final step where you will color in your picture, but first we will add some final small details in this step of our guide on how to draw a water bottle. First, you can add some curved lines near the top of the interior of the bottle to show where the liquid is filled up to.
That will do it for the final details, but that doesn’t mean you have to move on just yet! In this step you can also add some details of your own to finish off this picture.
We mentioned earlier that you could draw some detail on the label, and that would be a great way to personalize your picture. Perhaps you could create your own label design!
Then, you could try out some ideas such as drawing a background and other objects. Maybe you could show us what kinds of other beverages or foods you would enjoy with whatever this water bottle contains. Be sure to get creative and have fun with it!
Step 6 – Finish off your water bottle drawing with some color
This is the final step of your water bottle drawing, and this is the one where you get to have fun coloring in your artwork!
In our reference image, we used different shades of blues and light greys to color in the picture, but that is just a suggestion.
You could use any colors that you love to color this in, as bottles will usually have bright and vibrant colors decorating them.
Also, you could show that this bottle contains something other than water. Maybe you could use some shades of brown to show that there is some tasty cola in this bottle.
You can also have fun with the art mediums you choose for this image. Watercolor paints and colored pencils are great for a more subtle, muted look.
On the other hand, acrylics and colored pens are perfect for brighter shades. What colors and art mediums do you think you will use for your image?
4 More Ways To Make Your Water Bottle Drawing Unique

In this guide, we created a bottle that holds water, but it could be fun to show the bottle holding other liquids. For example, you could turn this water bottle sketch into a soda bottle.
If you were to do this, it could be as simple as changing the color of the plastic portions to something darker. You could also change the label to match the label of your favorite soda brand.
What other drinks can you think of that you could use to change this water bottle?
Another fun way to take this drawing of a water bottle in a whole new direction would be by adding a background. There are so many fun ideas you could do!
Water bottles will often be used at sporting events to keep athletes and players hydrated. That means that creating a background featuring a field or other sporting activity could be a good place to start!

You could use some of these items to make your water bottle sketch even more interesting to look at.
These could include some fruits or maybe something like an energy bar. It’s up to you, and you can show off what you would enjoy with a nice bottle of water!
Portraying transparent surfaces in a 2D drawing can be tricky, but there are some art tools and techniques you can use. If you want to make the plastic of this water bottle look transparent, you can use softer mediums.
These could include some colored pencils or maybe some watercolors. Another good way to show that something is transparent is by having an object behind it.
