Dommersen travelled extensively around Europe on painting tours. He was often accompanied by his son, and a similarity can be seen in their treatment of figures. Dommersen is most famous for his marine subjects and his street scenes. His works show excellent composition and depth, and he captures movement and atmosphere exquisitely. He was as competent at painting traumatic seas, wild skies and terrified people during a storm, as he was at painting tranquil, serene estuaries.
