Detail from Titian, The Death of Actaeon, about 1559-75 

This painting captures a specific moment in the story of Diana and Actaeon. Imagine what will happen next in the next painting in the series. Who will be in and who will be out? Where will it be set? Will the mood be the same as in this painting or different?

Now compare it with the painting The Death of Actaeon, also by Titian. Does it fit in with what you imagined? How well do you think it works as a sequel to 'Diana and Actaeon'? How well does it fit with the very dark nature of the story it tells? How would you show the conclusion of the story?
