Sketching the electric fields

If anyone would like a go at this problem, they can just attach a paint file or something or send it to my e-mail:

Heres the problem:
9. Three small, negatively charged spheres are located at the vertical of an equilateral triangle. If the magnitudes of the charges are equal, sketch the electric field in the region around this charge distribution, including the space inside the triangle.

Any help will be appreciated.
All i know is that the electrical field lines are driven away from positively charged source charges and toward negatively charged source charges. Now i dont know where to begin because all of the fields would be drawn going inwards towards the negaively charged spheres. Would they ever touch, i dont know? Im just confused all together.
