At Easter-time this year I was asked to paint on an ostrich egg for The Department Store in Auckland. My egg then partially inspired Karen Walker in her Resort range, which is in stores now! You can see the outcome below.
This from Karen:
“Our resort 2013 collection is inspired by weather. At the same time as we were working on designing the collection we commissioned Henrietta to paint an Easter egg as part of The Department Store’s Easter celebrations. We loved the egg and bought it for our own collection as soon as we saw it. Soon after purchasing it we were looking for a graphic approach to interpreting weather isobars and looked to Henrietta’s egg for a starting point for this. Our team then took scientific isobars, Henrietta’s egg and our own style and came up with this season’s resort graphic.”
I’ve been posting a few work in progress shots/sketches on my instagram, follow me there if you want- @ henriettaharris
Anonymous asked: have you drawn Lorde?
Nope, I think the artwork you’re referring to is by “saminthewolf”!
I’ve been doing a bit of travelling for the last few months- here are two sketchbook pics. New paintings coming soon!
