In 'Call of the Kingfisher' Lee Tiller has used a rich and verdant palette of cool green biased colours, ranging from deep greens and shadowy violets to bight yellow-greens. He paints in the same tradition as the original impressionists, painting with an immediacy that recreates the sensation of experiencing a moment in time and place. Hidden with the brushstrokes are myriad colours that often surprise and confound, yet viewed as a whole, form a harmonious effect similar to musical expression. Having developed a reputation for painting the effects of light, Lee’s work has often been mentioned alongside the works of the original French Impressionists, employing broken colour to create beautiful chromatic harmonies. Like Monet and Pisarro, Tiller reveals as much with colour within the shadows as you would expect to find in the full radiance of reflected sunlight. ‘Lee spends many hours wandering the rivers and streams around his home looking for compositions and places of ambience. He says "if you're very lucky you might see a burst of shimmering blue-green as a Kingfisher flashes past, although you're more likely to hear its call". It will make a wonderful and calming centre piece for any room. You can just imagine a Kingfisher watching you from inside this painting.
