Welcome to desomerart.com the official website for one of Northern Indiana's premier traditional watercolor artists, Tom De Somer. Here you will find a variety of his water media pieces, each designed and painted with bold, colorful brush strokes and layered with washes intended to invite the viewer into a hopeful and vibrant experience. Tom's love for the outdoors inspires him to paint the beauty discovered within the places he's lived including the South Pacific wilderness and coast, the Eastern Adirondack region, as well as the simplicity of the Midwest.
The majority of work displayed at this site has been painted in transparent watercolor, Tom's favorite medium. He loves to use larger brush strokes and use color in a way that encourages the viewer to visually engage in the painting. His training has been under and inspired by a number of master artists including Irvine Shapiro and Tony Couch - and has studied illustration and design at the American Academy of Art in Chicago.
