I found a water print of a horse with a square Chinese stamp signature
JA: What would you like to learn about the piece?
Customer: Well how can I send a picture to you for your advice
JA: You can share photos once I've connected you to the Appraiser. Do you know how old the piece is? What condition is it in?
Customer: Well I really can't tell how old it is but it looks old
JA: Is there anything else important you think the Appraiser should know?
Customer: The condition is a bit water damage but the horse is fine

I hung up please call again

I am very sorry, I am not sure what is happening. If you would like to speak to another specialist I can pass you on - would that be better for you?

Well I'm still only hearing music

I will opt out and the chat will be picked up by another expert. I will need to work out what is going wrong.

Once again many apologies

I am sending you an answer. Thank you for the image.

So this is ink on paper, it is not a watercolor. That red square on the left is a Chinese seal mark, your drawing is a copy of Hsu-Pei Hung famous paintings (also ink on paper)  He was famous for drawing horses etc, and your artist is imitating his style. Your drawing is still charming, I think it is still worth around £80, but it is not original Hsu-Pei Hung hence the value is low. Hope my information will help you. Many Thanks. Joanna

Thank you so very much, how can I sell it?

I would suggest the Etsy market or a local auction house....I bet there is one auction house near you.
