Summary Face Painting with Bill Leak is a six-part series which will take viewers on an amazing journey as renowned cartoonist and portrait painter Bill Leak paints six well-known Australians. Most people know Bill Leak as one of Australia's leading satirists via his day job as The Australian's daily editorial cartoonist. But he is also a highly respected portrait painter, who equally divides his time between ridiculing his subjects mercilessly in his cartoons and immortalising them in oils. Over each episode Bill will build a very personal picture of the subject he's trying to capture on canvas and give us an insight into the detailed process of portraiture - just how difficult it is to 'capture' that essence on canvas. In Face Painting this process is even harder for Bill as his subjects are no longer with us. In this week's emotional episode, Bill paints AC/DC larrikin Bon Scott. To understand the essence of the character of Bon Scott, Bill spends time with Bon's ex-wife Irene. They separated before Bon became famous but always remained good friends. Irene has never been interviewed for TV about her relationship before and in this interview she shares her memories of Bon's earlier life and his off-stage persona. Bill also talks to devoted fan Doug Thorncroft, who is president of the Bon Scott fan club, Bon's close friend Graham 'Buzz' Bidstrup and respected rock photographer Graham Webber.At the end of the show, Bill will reveal to the TV audience and to Buzz and Doug his portrait of Bon. Will they like it or hate it?Bill's final portrait of Bon will also be revealed on Tuesday, December 2.PRODUCTION DETAILS:Produced by Endemol Southern Star for ABC TV.
