Death of the Narcissist by InsaneRasberry Death of the Narcissist by InsaneRasberry
This is just a small watercolor that I did while I was waiting for my dad, though I rather like it...
I painted this to echo the Greek myth of the nymph Echo, and the human Narcissus. He was in love with himself, but Echo was in love with him as well. He saw his reflection in a pool, and gazed at it until he died of starvation on thirst, and after that, Echo went mad over his death and her grief. Hera then cursed her to only repeat what others say, thus the word "Echo". Though in his place a flower grew, the Narcissus, which to this date, always grows by pools of water.
I hope you like it!

I remember hearing that myth in fourth grade...Good times, good times.

Just out of curiosity, how big was the picture in real life?
