Besides this presentation, Don will give an art talk on tips and techniques of acrylic painting on March 18 at the Gallery as well as providing a two day workshop on April 25 & 26 at Nourish Restaurant in Sequim.
Resonating in Don's paintings are memories of a life spent on his uncle's South Dakota ranch making hay and cultivating corn. Capturing similar views today we can see in his art work clouds floating in pastel skies, trees lining the hillsides, fences and plowed fields dominating the landscapes. These views play a vital part of his work today since his move from the Black Hills of South Dakota to Port Townsend, Washington, a thriving tourist mecca and art scene.
His passion to paint what he sees as familiar shapes and imprint patterns that humanity places on the surface of Nature's realm, reflecting his interest in linear lines and geometric shapes that are repeated. To reveal this element as well as the intensity of color Don Tiller's paintings incorporate layering and glazing in fluid acrylics. This technique begins with a black canvas, sketched in with pastels and then the application of acrylic paint. The results are images with intense color with bold patterns forming recognizable objects and shapes.
