I just acquired an original watercolor or gouache painting

Customer Question

I just acquired an original watercolor or gouache painting on ecru paper that is professionally framed. The subject matter is of a scene depicting tents, saddled horses and camels with people and is signed with a Red Seal Mark and hand inscribed linear signature in black. Looks like a primitive nature scene. The inside matt measures 14 3/4" x 10". Due to the Seal Mark although different than other Chinese Red Seal Marks looks to be Asian. Would like to know which culture or ethnic group and circa it was produced and monetary value.

At your convenience, please send a clear, in-focus close-up of the red seal and signature as well as a close-up of areas of the painted subject to see the texture.

Here are the imaged you requested so you may finish my appraisal on my original watercolor gouache painting of a mountainess scene with tents, working horses, camels and people and signed with a red seal mark and hand inscribed in black signature overlapping red seal mark. Looking forward to hearing back from you regarding my appraisal on my painting. Thanks, Marilyn (Manny).
