Raymond Morris's Paintings

Digital copies of pen and ink and watercolour paintings of heritage buildings, painted by Christchurch artist Raymond Morris.

Raymond Morris is a New Zealand artist who lives in Christchurch but works internationally, and specializes in painting heritage buildings in pen and ink and watercolours. In recent years he has completed a series on 'Heritage English Public Houses', as well as presently working on paintings of '100 Classic Homes of Canterbury'. Digital copies of these paintings will in due course be offered to the New Zealand Historic Places Trust for their archives. He has also contributed illustrations to New Zealand book titles including ‘Lancaster Park, a History’, ‘Timaru at Last, Arrival of the Strathallan’, and ‘Christchurch Buildings Watercolour Collection’ for which he donated the digital copies of the paintings to the Nurse Maude Hospice for their fundraising.

As well as painting many fine buildings of the present era, one of his great passions is recreating, in a colour painting, the historic buildings of bygone years. Due to the 2010/2011 earthquakes he has and is still working on painting many of the familiar buildings which were around Christchurch prior to the earthquakes and have now disappeared. Fortunately he had an extensive photographic record of city buildings as an aid in painting the missing buildings. Most of his historic photographs from previous extensive travels are now with the National Museum of Australia and the Alexander Turnbull Library in New Zealand. Other paintings may be accessed on his website www.raymondmorrisnzartist.com.
