my first reaction is that this is a decorative picture relating to popular Daoism, Daoist immortals playing go, and that the name given by the artist, meaning "blue cliff", is a pen name referring the a popular old book of Buddhist riddles by that title.
A faint possibility is that it is by a painter from Fuzhou who was active during the first half of the 19th century named Gao Tihua 高體華, but that's a stretch without any other works by this guy to compare yours to. The seal does not support this notion either, though it is almost completely illegible.
Agree that it seems to be a painting, not a print
