Dog-Sled Mushing, Alaskan Huskies - Watercolors and Coloring Page
Topic: Seasonal/Holiday

Try your hand at drawing and painting huskies and sled dogs! Find some reference pictures of Alaskan Huskies, sled dogs, and dogsled teams, dog mushers. Some reference photos came from a Maine Sled dog races challenge site, I believe, but it no longer exists.

Read about the Iditarod sled dog races which start March 3, 2007.

Once you have a line painting or drawing you like use it to trace over directly on your watercolor paper and develop a watercolor spontaneously.
