A color painting based on a sketch by the Chinese artist Huang Binhong (黃賓虹 1865-1955) as a way to learn from his style. You can see a line across the paper about two thirds of the way up, above which the color didn’t absorb in the same way as it did below—something to do with the way the paper was made—that was not intentional. Fibers in the paper also show.
