Award-winning artist David Castle creates watermedia art infused with unexpectedly rich and vivid colors. His art is inspired by the variety of mountain and urban terrain he has explored throughout his extensive travels in North America and his years of living, working and traveling throughout Europe during his former career as a computer scientist. David draws from his exposure to the colors and shapes of these very different places as he combines paper, brush, water, color, air, surface tension and gravity to create each painting.
As a constant innovator and experimenter, David develops his own multi-layered techniques for watermedia painting that produce opaques, transparencies and texture uncommon for watercolors. David also incorporates rich watercolor metallic paints into many of his paintings that highlight his unique abstractions. Most recently, David has developed an archival-quality technique for sealing his watercolor paintings on paper and mounting them to stretched canvas for a fresh presentation, free of the confines of traditional framing under glass.
David is a former corporate technology guy and has studied with a variety of artists in North America and Europe. David has completed a variety of large-scale commissions for private collections throughout the United States, Canada, Mexico and England.
