Here are the two shots I used. The kayakers were at the right eye level, and I looked at the canoe to guess how high up the stern would rise, where the person would be sitting, etc. A canoe is one of the hardest shapes I can think of to draw. The angles and arcs are so pretty on the boat itself but are very confusing and difficult to capture accurately.
