Aspiring artists often practice drawing using items such as a flower, a vase or a bowl of fruit. As your drawing skills increase, add other items to your practice routine such as liquid in a bottle or a water bottle to enhance your skills in creating shapes. Drawing a water bottle or liquid in a bottle develops skills in round and oval shapes as well as proportioning lines so that the image looks realistic.

    Draw the Bottle

  1. 1

    Draw the bottle without the liquid by drawing an oval shape to form the base of the bottle. The base of the bottle is what allows the bottle to stand up on a table or flat surface.

  2. 2

    Draw a line up from both sides of the oval shape. Extend both lines up about 2 or 3 inches to form the bottom of the bottle.

  3. 3

    Start at the stopping point in step 2 and draw a 1/2-inch line inward on each side of the bottle to begin forming the neck of the bottle.

  4. 4

    Put your pencil at the end of the inward lines and draw a line up on each side of the bottle to make the bottleneck.

  5. 5

    Draw a small oval shape at the top of the bottleneck. Connect the lines to the small oval shape for your drawing to resemble an empty open bottle.

    Draw the Liquid in the Bottle

  1. 1

    Look at the bottle drawing and determine how much liquid you want in the bottle.

  2. 2

    Draw a horizontal line across the bottle and form the image of liquid inside the bottle.

  3. 3

    Shade in the area of the bottle below the liquid line.
