Alan Somers is a self taught Dublin artist. Alan has drawn and painted since childhood but for a number of years life took him in a different direction. Returning to his art with renewed vigour some years ago Alan rediscovered his passion for painting. Although he enjoys different subject matter his favourite is Landscape and Cityscapes.
He says ‘perhaps it is the architecture or the way light plays with streets and buildings or the contrasting shadows of stationary buildings and those cast by moving figures’. Either way his watercolours have a magical quality.
