Making room for Echo.

I've just sketched Echo in.
I'm not sure how she is actually going to fit.
I might have to lower Narcissus and move Echo over to the left.
Where their heads connect is going to be the central point of the composition.
I want her to possibly thread an arm through his and reach toward the reflection.

This was the first picture I did as a sort of study before I decided that I wanted Echo to be included.
The painting at the top is what I'm working on at the moment. 

the watery third

Narcissus and Echo on the hill.
I like the mirrored arcs that the two figures create.
I'm thinking that I'd like to make the reflected face Echo's.
Narcissus is looking at Echo rather than himself.
