From 1964 to 1985, Donald Buyers was a lecturer at Robert Gordon's Institute of Technology, and in 1968 he received an Arts Council award which gave him time out to develop his own work.

In 1973, he was elected to the Royal Scottish Society of Painters in Watercolours, and from 1981 until his retirement in 1985 he was visiting lecturer at Gray's School of Art.

Between 1954 and 1993, he had one-man exhibitions almost every year, and until 1999 was sending or was invited to contribute to group exhibitions throughout the country.

His work is in the the Duke of Edinburgh's collection and in many others, public and private, national and international.
