Notes In this evocative night scene, Indians are capturing horses and hazing them along with a blanket and rope. Here Russell uses an opaque white watercolor in his work. Around the central horse he has used the opaque paint-albeit somewhat sparingly-to create the feeling of depth and dimension. His skilled use of opaque watercolor would progress greatly in the coming years.
