Feel free to use the medium you prefer for the challenge. Rod may use each of these at various stages of the challenge.

* For acrylic paint the only medium you will need is Retarder to slow the drying time.

* For oils you will need a solvent such as Gamsol and a fast drying medium like Liquin

Painting Surfaces

We will be doing a number of painting exercises to build our skills along with a number of actual paintings.

For the painting exercises you will want some 8"x 10" or 10" x 12" painting panels or canvas panels. You could also use canvas pads or if painting in acrylic or gouache you could use watercolour pads or mixed media painting pads. You will need enough for about ten painting exercises.

For the actual paintings you will want 3 canvases of either 12" x 16" or 16" x 20"


Rod will mostly be using synthetic flat brushes - 1" in width, 1/2" and 1/4" appx. He generally has two of each size.

You will also need a script liner brush and a palette knife.

Feel free to use the brushes you feel comfortable using.

Support & Assistance

If at any point in time you require assistance then the place to get help is via our Support Desk.

Simply send an email to and let us know how we can assist. Our support team will generally get back to you within 48 to 72 hours and operate Monday to Friday. Do not send multiple messages about the same issue as this only slows down our response time.

Please note that during the live challenge our support desk does get extra busy so please be patient.
