An Auckland art expert is calling King Charles' first post coronation portrait 'striking and interesting'.

The painting, unveiled at Buckingham Palace, depicts the King in Welsh military regalia, with a butterfly on his shoulder, against a vibrant red background.

The Head of Art at Webb's, Tasha Jenkins, says it was a surprise at first sight.

"They really wanted it to be something bold and striking and different from what people would expect. We're all talking about it, so I'm sure that's a plus for them."
