Notes This watercolor is an excellent example of Russell's early work, employing a "pure" transparent watercolor technique. He portrays three Indians on the hunt, perhaps after they were forced to settle on the reservations, since the saddles and clothing reflect this time period. He skillfully handles the transparent paint washes and layers to create the scene.
