Henrietta Harris: Creating the Portrait

Henrietta Harris: Creating the Portrait

Auckland artist Henrietta Harris illustrates timeless portraits of young men and woman using watercolor and gouache. Her skilfully hand-drawn creations have appeared in shows all over New Zealand, Australia, London and New York. Using photographs taken of her friends, or friends of friends to create new pieces of work, she captures the emotions of each individual in a particular mood.  Although her techniques of illustration are quite traditional, her beautiful portraits preserve a modern style.
