Artist David Castle
Award-winning artist David Castle creates oil and 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 oil and watermedia painting that produce wonderful opaques, transparencies and textures. David also incorporates rich watermedia metallic paints into many of his paintings that highlight his unique abstractions.
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.
Oh my gosh, after cruising around on your site, I think maybe you live in Colorado. Me too and my “about” picture on my website/blog was taken on a mountain-top in the TenMile Range up by Breckenridge. Plus, I know (sort of) Steve who posted a comment on your blog. Small world. Six degrees of separation. 🙂
I’m a watercolorist from Pakistan, and I think your work is beautiful and inspiring. Do you use masking tape in your paintings?
Linked to your blog from another artist’s blog. Was admiring your work, and then, wow, you are in Denver. I escape up there every so often (looking to move up that way) when Montrose gets to be too much, or I should say, not enough. Now I must go back and read your blog, gosh I hope there aren’t hundreds of posts going back years.
hey! im an yr 12 art student in Melbourne, im very inspired by your art work. They are nicely done and structure. I reli wish i could work out something like you!! =]]

Your art work is such an inspiration. I love your paintings with the rocks. Today i found black watercolour paper and cant wait to use it!. What you do is wonderful. I love anything “out of the box”.
Wow. Thanks to finding you, I visited Steve’s Gluten Free blog. I’m waiting to find out if I have to go on that diet. If I do, I’ll be visiting Steve’s blog quite frequently!
Just finished reading your entire blog from start to finish. Very inspirational and you do beautiful and unique work. Loved the pictures from your “Oregon Artist Studio”. Oh, and now I’m making a list for the market so I can make the Chocolate Mint Sandwich Cookies and the Peanut Butter ones, they sound and look delicious. Wait…interesting blogging, awesome art AND recipes??? Ok, your site is a keeper!!!
David! I am SO HAPPY to see your new life/”job” here! I never knew you were an artist back when we worked together in the Old Sea of Beige Cubicles. Your paintings are so fresh and beautiful. I am inspired. And happier now, seeing another artist bust out of the corporate world to a much more fulfilling life!
