A small color painting based on a black and white original by Zhang Guan (張觀) as a way to learn from his style. There are several people throughout Chinese history with this name, including an ancient general, a painter of long ago, and a fairly recent painter. This is based on a work by the painter of long ago, who is relatively unknown in the English language world.

With traditional Chinese paper backing.
