The first painting depicts three Daoist immortals standing on clouds, dressed with long flotting robes, one holding a parasol, the other dressed like an ancient warrior and having a sword. The last one, with blue face, holding a court tablet "hu". The second painting also shows three Daoist immortals on clouds. One of them, depicted a little upper than the others, is offering a flower on a tray while the two others, wearing long flotting robes, are holding a scholar rock in a planter. The style is of high quality, with such vivacity in the drape, and delicacy in the way of depicting the faces and the details highlighted with gold. Each painting bears a signature and seal mark of Wang Zhenpeng (王振鵬). The two paintings also bears collector's seal marks as valutation of the quality of the painting.
