Does such an illustration exist ?
It is derievd by differentiating the ChapmanKolmogorov relation under suitable assumptions about the underlying stochastic process. I think you can find this in Doob's Stochastic Processes book. The derivation uses a Taylor expansion, so somewhat analogous to what you are asking for.
