If you're a budding artist - or have a strong appreciation for the craft, then head to historic Morpeth this weekend.
Fourteen artists are about to spend a weekend painting there and it's something you won't want to miss.
Between them they have more than one thousand years of experience - and they cannot wait to share their tips and tricks with enthusiastic art lovers.
They're converging in the town for the Festival of Two Palettes, which is being held on Saturday and Sunday at Morpeth Gallery.
They'll be painting at their easels and working on a wide range of works including dramatic sunsets, the glow of the full moon, and pink sunrises, to name a few.
The artists include Brisbane artist Stephen Jesic (pictured) who has received international recognition for an art work featuring wildlife.
"Last year Stephen Jesic had the best painting in the world for a wildlife painting, beating 23,296 entries from 23,009 artists from 93 countries around the world, in the American Art Awards," the gallery's Trevor Richards said.
"His painting was a portrait of a Scarlett Macaw. People can view his stunning paintings of Red Tailed Black Cockatoos at Morpeth Gallery."
Artist Ian Hansen, of Hunters Hill, will also be taking part.
He is known for his marine works. It's fitting since he spent his childhood years on the foreshore of Hervey Bay and spent 12 years in the Royal Australian Navy.
The festival will run between 10am and 5pm on both days.
Morpeth Gallery is located in Green Street.
