Frequently Asked Questions

Do you sell original art or prints?

Yes I do! I sell originals and a some signed prints in my own Art & Books shop, and a larger selection of prints in different formats are available on Society6.  Click here to enter my shop!

Which art media do you use?

I work with various techniques – here’re some tools I often use:

Drawings: Micron pigment ink pens and Caran d’Ache Luminance 6901 colour pencils, or sometimes Copic markers.

Sketchbook: The small, square book that I often use, with white covers and rounded corners is Royal Talens Art Creation Sketchbook.

Ink paintings: Copic Various Inks (refills) to paint, details added with colour pencils, like Caran d’Ache Luminance 6901.

Watercolours: Lately I’ve mostly used pans from Schmincke and Rembrandt. I also like to use masking fluid to create negative space or highlights. I prefer about 300 gsm textured watercolour paper.

Digital and mixed media: I use Adobe Photoshop and Wacom tablet. I sometimes draw illustrations digitally, or combine traditional elements (scanned drawings or paintings) with digital editing.

Photography: Canon EOS 6D camera and Sigma Art lens, 50mm f/1.4 A DG HSM.

You can find some videos of my art process on my YouTube channel.

How about commissions?

I am quite busy with my own art projects, but I do selective illustration work for clients every now and then. I am particularly interested in books, fantasy, fairytales, mythology and nature. For more information about my availability and commission rates, please email me at info@ullathynell.com and describe your project, so that I can estimate the amount of work and calculate the price. Please provide details on the subject matter, complexity, size and total number of illustrations, as well as your project schedule and other requirements – for example, if graphic design work is included, or if you are looking for a particular art style (please refer to images or projects in my portfolio). Remember to include the purpose and extent of the copyrights are you interested in purchasing.
