Begin with the line for the water, this will help keep the perspective true. Next, draw the three curved lines that form the basic shape of the boat, it will look like a long thin banana.  The front and back go high out of the water. The ends go straight up. There is a circle at the back end and a rectangle-like shape at the front.

Start the man as a stick figure holding the long oar. Put him near the back. Make this stick figure to have knees and elbows that bend. After you have the position of the man the way you want it then go around the stick figure to make it thick. The hands are like boxes on the  oar. Draw the clothing last.

The gondola has two seats in the middle They are half circles with circles inside. Draw a second line parallel to the front and back lines for the keel.

The boat is colored black but do not draw it solid- give places where water is reflecting and the paint is shiny. The pants on the man are black, his shirt has black stripes, and the hair is black.

Draw some ripples for the water.
