Difficult Pleasure - Brett Whiteley (Creative Spirits)

The only full length documentary ever made about Brett Whiteley, Difficult Pleasure is a revealing portrait of one of Australia's finest painters. Brett Whiteley’s artworks in his studio are intercut with black-and-white childhood photographs, and shows him at work on a huge canvas as he creates and completes a work during the film. This program looks at the life of Brett Whiteley, who talks of being 'born with a gift' and his desire to test and abuse that gift.

Originally broadcast as part of the Creative Spirits series on ABC TV.
