BEHIND THE FACE: Portraiture Years 7 – 12
Jill Talbot holds a Bachelor of Education (Visual Arts & Crafts) with Honours in Drawing and Printmaking from the University of Melbourne. Talbot’s early training as a printmaker is evident in her work through the use of hand-cut stencils, rollers, engraved surfaces and mono-printing techniques which are often utilised in her painting process.
Commissioned by the Print Council of Australia to produce a Members’ Edition of etchings, Talbot’s work can be found in regional and private collections throughout Australia. She exhibits widely in group awards and art prizes and has had several solo exhibitions at the Shoalhaven Regional Gallery in New South Wales.
In this segment, Jill will explore a range of processes she employs in the making of a portrait as she demonstrates practical techniques used during the early stages of a painting. These draw upon her training as a printmaker and woodworker, utilising tools and methods which are accessible to both students and educators. This session will invite you to explore different entry points into portraiture as you learn how an artist develops and reveals her visual language using drawing, printmaking, woodworking and painting.
