I can see on the close up pictures that the painter used highly concentrated ink, which contains a very small amount of water. Heavy ink is commonly used for delineating outlines to give them a sense of shapness and boldness, and for depicting objects that are closer to the forground in order to realize an outstanding effect of three-dimensional depth of the composition. I could only find a limited number of pictures from He Weipu on the net, but non of them was similar
to this one.
I suggest, you should take this painting to one of the major art auction houses for example Sotheby's, to see if it can be authentiated as a genuine painting of He Weipu. Be sure to take any evidence of how it came into your posession etc.
