Featured Artist| Alan Somers

Alan Somers is a self-taught Dublin artist who began painting at a young age. As he grew into adulthood his art slowly took a back seat to work and the demands of everyday life. After almost a decade, he returned to art and discovered a renewed passion for watercolour painting. Using traditional methods, he skillfully balances light and shadow to create a captivating atmosphere in his cityscapes.

His work can now be seen in galleries around Dublin, including the Duke Street Gallery and The Whitehorn Gallery.

“It’s all about mood and atmosphere in my watercolours. I try to paint in a way that draws people into it. I do enjoy pencil, pastel, and dabbling with anything really… but watercolour is where my heart is.”
